I had to blenderize everything for my mushy phase.  Added enough liquids so that the end result was of applesauce consistency and slid off a spoon.  Here's what I ate.

egg salad
scrambled eggs
tuna salad
chicken salad (use canned chicken since it's super soft)
baked fish
laughing cow cheese wedges
ff refried beans with a little melted cheese
cottage cheese
ricotta cheese
the lowest carb cream soups I could find and then I added protein powder to them
ff plain greek yogurt (added a little splenda and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice)
no sugar added applesauce
sugar free pudding
still used protein shakes, broth and other liquids to supplement mushies

I got creative with the flavors I added to things.  I used different spices and liquids to switch it up.  I must have made my chicken salad ten different ways: ff mayo, greek yogurt, dry hidden valley ranch seasoning, dry mustard seasoning, mild buffalo sauce, ff sour cream, etc.

After mushies, I suggest dropping the carby stuff (cream soups, applesauce, pudding, etc).

Hope this helps!

 I'm three days out from mushies too! I will be glad when I can just have a spoonful of applesauce!

tuna, chicken and egg salad!!! i lived off of that for weeks!!! and cottage cheese!  i found some very very very thin like cripsy wafers to scoop out my salads above.. i only had one or two with it, it helped to break up the mushie and satisfy my craving for something crunchy...  just go slow and test things first! enjoy!!
