Food for thought – keeping a healthy smile

I can certainly admit to having eaten one sweet too many or a glass of red wine / fizzy drink. All things that don’t do good for our teeth. Simply Health created a cool infographic showing us which foods to watch out for and which to use for good teeth health! 

I created a juice recipe using some of my favourite ingredients from the ‘eat them’ section of the infographic. As autumn is descending upon us on a good shot go vitamin c along with the immune busting benefits of ginger so I named it ‘Second Spring’ …a new beginning, ready for the changing season. 


Carrot sticks are a great tooth-friendly, healthy snack. They are packed full of vitamin A, which helps form and maintain healthy teeth. Plus, their crunchy texture stimulates the gums and acts like a natural toothbrush.


Ginger has many healthy properties, one of which includes being anti-inflammatory – helping to support healthy mouth tissue.

‘Second Spring’ 


– 3 large carrots 

– 1 red apple 

– 1/2 inch piece of ginger 

– juice of 1/2 lime squeezed in after other ingredients have been juiced 


To make juice simply put ingredients (peel the ginger) through your juicer. Squeeze in lime juice. 

I like to keep things simple…simpElle.

      I'm in love with ginger at the moment in juices! I also added some spinach to this yday and it tasted just as amazing but with some extra nutrients 🙂
