These Green Foods Can Help Your Teeth
Spring is on the way and St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. It seems like there’s no better way to celebrate than with all the green foods you can eat! First of all, did you think I was just going to suggest a nice green salad? While that’s a great choice, there are also a lot of other green foods you can enjoy. And they can help your teeth, too. So let’s get creative!
All the Healthy Green Foods
Kiwis are a fun green fruit to add to your day. And of course, there’s always the tart Granny Smith apples you and your parents can pick up from your local grocery store. Have some broccoli florets and dip them in ranch for an afternoon snack. They’re almost like miniature trees. And did you know that if you cut up a green bell pepper across the middle, it looks just like a shamrock? That’s so cool! Maybe it will help you find a pot of gold on St. Patrick’s Day.
You could have your green veggies like cucumbers and zucchini spears with some green pea hummus. We like this recipe from SeriousEats.com – it even gives you three different variations, and they’re all super yummy. Maybe you love sandwich wraps. Yum, we do! You can get green spinach tortilla’s, and if you need help convincing your mom to get them, tell her it will give you extra veggies. Pretty sure she’ll love the addition.
