but weigh too much, so
Here's another another take: chewing can be downright exhausting.
Really and truly, sometimes I simply can't wrap my brain around the effort required to chew. Usually I muster that effort because we fibro folk are Type A++ personalities. At other times, I come to what's left of my senses and toss stuff into a blender.
This morning was one of those mornings. My first big hint came while peeling a naval orange. While wrestling off its rind, I realized that I didn't have the energy to chew. I thought about tossing it down the garbage disposal and that led to thinking "smoothie!" So I hauled out the blender and was sipping breakfast within minutes. No chewing necessary. (Note to self: keep the blender on the counter to save energy.)
Today I blended break-the-fast, which is typically sweet but I've also blended savory and spicy meals, opting for mush over more exhaustion. As you might guess, I'm exceedingly fond of soup because of the low-no-chew factor. Alas, my bubble gum days are totally over.
