Breakfast Options Good for Your Teeth
Stop the Sugar
If you sit down to watch television every evening like most people then you are subjected to a borage of commercials for sugar rich breakfast treats. They are meant to be enticing due to their convenience, but they contribute greatly to tooth decay. To protect your teeth and have fuel for the day, you need a better breakfast. The following are some breakfast ideas that are quick and good for your teeth.
Try cold oatmeal for a change. Get a resealable container, and fill it with oatmeal. Pour milk over the oatmeal, and add fruit on top for a little sweetness. Put it in the refrigerator so it is ready for the morning.
Add two eggs to a coffee cup and microwave for a minute. Stir with a fork then microwave for two more minutes. When the eggs are done, top with grated cheese. Add a small spoonful of salsa if you want. If you prefer omelets to scrambled eggs, spray a microwaveable plate with cooking spray. Pour two beaten eggs on to the plate and microwave for a few minutes. Flip the omelet half way through cooking. Top with the shredded cheese and salsa.
Get Your Fiber
Bran muffins made with applesauce instead of sugar are good for you. Bake them ahead of time the night before so they ready for the morning. Wrap each one in cling wrap after they are cooled down. Add some dried chopped fruit in to the batter for added flavor.
In a resealable container layer crunchy topped apples, yogurt, raisins, and chopped walnuts. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. If you want to change it up a bit then switch out the apples for pears and use chopped pecans instead.
What to Drink
Liquids like coffee and orange juice are very acidic. Plain water or a glass of milk is best to go with your breakfast. If you like tea, then drink a cup with no sugar added. Several brands of tea have flavors to them, so they taste good without needing sweeteners.
