This fall is a good time to look at any changes that might need to be made to your diet to maximize your dental health. The first place to consider making a change is in the amount of sugary foods you consume. Foods high in sugar, such as candy and soda, contribute to tooth decay. The foods you need to continue adding to your diet that are good for your dental health are cheese, yogurt, salmon, leafy greens, apples, carrots, celery and almonds.
Here’s a simple recipe for you to try this fall as you consider making diet changes that make your taste buds happy and your teeth healthy.
Salmon Spinach Salad
- 8 teaspoons, canola oil, divided
- 4 (6 oz.) salmon fillets
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon white miso (soybean paste)
- 1-tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
- 1-teaspoon sugar
- 1-teaspoon dark sesame oil
- 1-½ cups shaved English cucumber
- 1 (9oz) package fresh baby spinach
- 1-teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted
- Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons canola oil. Put a dash of salt over the fish. Add fish to pan and cook 4 minutes on each side. Remove the fish from pan; keep warm.
- Combine remaining 2 tablespoons canola oil, miso, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add cucumber and spinach to bowl; toss well. Arrange 1 fillet and 2 cups salad on each of the four plates. Sprinkle each serving with the toasted sesame seeds, and enjoy!
