Healthy recipes to try this Spring

Start the new season with healthy and delicious recipes! Here’s a few easy (and tooth-friendly) foods to serve your family this Spring.

Strawberry overnight oats

Strawberries are great for your teeth and contain malic acid which acts as a natural teeth whitener. Try adding strawberries to your overnight oats for a filling, healthy breakfast. All you’ll need is chia seeds, oats, yogurt, strawberries and your milk of choice. Here’s the quick and easy recipe. 

Roasted vegetable couscous 

If you’re looking for an easy side dish, try incorporating couscous into your dinner! This traditional Mediterranean pasta is great with olive oil and roasted vegetables. 

Sweet potato salad

Sweet potatoes are one of the best foods for healthy teeth. They contain lots of vitamin A and they can help naturally form keratin which helps protect tooth enamel. Add this power food to your next Spring salad. We recommend pairing kale, pomegranate and apple with this root vegetable. 

Mango salsa topped salmon

Salmon is a great source of protein. It’s also packed with vitamin B, potassium and countless other vital nutrients. Give this seafood dish a spring makeover by topping it with a delicious mango strawberry salsa!
