Dr. Paige Woods isn’t a chef; she’s a dentist. But as a holistic dentist committed to overall health and wellness‚ she watches what she eats and hopes you do too.
Did you know that a celery salad can be good for your teeth? It makes sense when you consider that celery contains lots of water – which promotes saliva production – as well as vitamin B12 for teeth and bone health‚ vitamin C and folic acid‚ among other good–for–you things.
Perhaps the easiest celery salad recipe for teeth health is the Waldorf salad‚ which you can make quickly and easily by combining these ingredients in whatever proportions you like:
- celery‚ of course
- apples or pears
- blue cheese‚ if you like it
- and a little lemon juice.
While the blue cheese isn’t traditionally included‚ many people think it adds depth of flavor to the recipe. And the dressing is usually a mayo–based concoction‚ but we think lemon juice – which is better for your overall health than mayo – tastes better and allows the flavors of the ingredients to shine through.
Dr. Woods reminds you to rinse your mouth with water after consuming this salad so that the acidic lemon juice doesn’t remain on your teeth.
Who knew you could find useful dietary advice on the website of a San Diego dentist? Remember that Dr. Woods is interested in every aspect of the lives and health of her patients and works toward solutions that support your overall health rather than taking away from it.
