Want healthier teeth and gums?
Eat more of these foods:

Part 1

Gums are the hero of the mouth. They keep your teeth secure, protect your oral bones, and battle against bacteria on a daily basis. While we take care to make sure that our teeth are properly cleaned daily, we can often forget to take care of our gums. An easy way to make sure your gums are getting the healthy support they need is through your diet. Read on to discover the best gum-loving foods that you can easily incorporate into your meals to give them an extra daily boost.

Onions

Onions have been proven to be a fantastic food for healthy gums because they neutralize oral bacteria. They have microbial properties that target the most common types of bacteria that cause gum disease and cavities. For great gums, try incorporating more onions into your meals as salad toppers, in sandwiches and burgers, in stir fries, and in soups, stews, and chilis.

Leafy greens

Vegetables like kale and spinach are filled to the brim with mouth-healthy vitamins and minerals. Specifically, they hold vitamin C, which boosts the production of red blood cells and reduces inflammation. Both these benefits battle against irritation and gum disease. Leafy greens require more chewing, thanks to their high fiber content, which is good for gums because the chewing action creates more saliva. This helps to flush out food particles, bacteria, and plaque that may be sticking to your teeth near the gum line. Revamp your diet with power-packed greens by creating salads with them, adding them as a cooked side dish to main meals, and putting them in soups and sandwiches.

Green tea

There is some research which shows that this antioxidant-rich tea can help stave off inflammation in the body. Green tea has specific antioxidants called catechins which help gums fight inflammation caused by the one of the types of oral bacteria responsible for gum disease. Try drinking a cup of green tea daily to give your gums a healthy boost.

Chai-Spiced Ackee Cookies

 

 

Ingredients

Dry mix:

  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Chai spice mix  
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Wet mix:

  • 3/4 cup Parboiled/canned ackee packed into the cup when measuring
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter* melted
  • 1/2 cup Granulated white sugar
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar packed

To finish:

  • Raw/Demerara sugar to finish

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients to combine in a bowl to combine
  2. Combine wet ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend till smooth.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients then pour in the wet, mix till well combined but don’t overmix.
  4. Chill for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  6. In a shallow bowl, pour a layer of raw/demerara sugar.
  7. Using a cookie scoop (I used the black handled OXO one which I believe dishes 2 tbsps at a time), scoop balls of the cookie dough and drop onto the sugar to coat the base.
  8. Place them sugared side up on the cookie sheet then press down (these will not spread a lot so it’s important to press them down evenly).
  9. Repeat till you have used all the cookie dough. It may be necessary to do this in batches depending on how many cookie sheets you have as you don’t want to crowd the trays
  10. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes till the edges have browned.
  11. Let cool for a couple minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
  12. Let cool completely before filling
