At various times during my braces journey, I’ve daydreamed about eating:

chewy things

  • dried dates
  • raisins
  • gum (especially when I ate garlicky food)

crispy things

  • pizza
  • rice crackers
  • bread with a nice cruchy crust
  • biscotti
  • granola
  • lots of things that I’ve had to mush down but are actually meant to be eaten crispy, like crackers


  • walnuts
  • pecans
  • almonds

corn on the cob

biting into a juicy apple; munching on a carrot stick

What foods are you dreaming of?
