Fantastic Foods for a Liquid or Soft-Food Diet

As liquid and soft-food diets become more prevalent in health magazines and body detoxes you may be wondering how you can get on board without having to only drink smoothies for days at a time. Although smoothies are the go-to food for liquidnutrition, there is an entire world of foods that you can eat, no matter how particular your palate is.


Risotto can be your high-class health food while you’re on your soft or liquid diet. There are common types of risotto, but the base of a great risotto is rice, a fat (use olive oil rather than butter for a healthy version), a splash of wine (use real wine, not sodium-heavy, bitter cooking wine), broth, and the proper preparation.

Once you perfect the technique, you can customize your risotto to your liking. Some great variations on the theme are:
Caprese salad risotto with mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes
Beet and goat cheese risotto
Thai curry risotto


What could be simpler and more delicious than oats, brown sugar, and your favorite fruits? Not much. The amazing secret that most people don’t know is that oatmeal can be prepared in dozens of ways to start, or end, your day.

You can add a little variety to this classic mainstay by adding some interesting touches, such as:
Omelette-style with eggs, avocado, and veggies
Mint, vanilla, and walnut oatmeal
Asian-style with soy sauce, mushrooms, seaweed, and sesame seeds

Frozen Yogurt

A fantastic dessert for any time of year is frozen yogurt. It can generally be prepared to be healthier than its sister food, ice cream, so that means it can make its way from time to time into your liquid or soft-food diet.

Some unique and flavorful frozen yogurts that can find their way into your bowl are:
Chai tea
Berries and goat cheese

All of these foods are great tasting and can be made great for you, (and great for your liquid or soft-food diet), but if you’re running out the door and don’t have a lot of time for a meal, you can always grab a quick smoothie or delicious liquidnutrition supplement.
