Your Biological Dentist Recommends a Recipe Recharge

added on: March 23, 2022

March is here and your holistic and biological dentists in Wilmington think it’s time for a recipe recharge as we share some healthy ideas you can use to give your body a reboot just in time for spring.

We do love our green juice drinks at our Wilmington holistic and biological dental office, give this alternative version a shot and tell us what you think:

RECIPE #1: Green Juice Recharge

Combine in a blender and puree until smooth:

¼ cup mixed frozen Berries
¼ Avocado
½ packed Kale Leaves, roughly chopped
½ cup Blueberry, Pomegranate or Cherry Juice
¼ cup Coconut Water
½ cup Almond or Rice Milk
1 teaspoon fresh Ginger Root, minced
½ tablespoon Flax Meal
½ teaspoon Flax Oil

Now that you have your juice all taken care of, let’s try another delicious recipe that’s sure to be good for both your oral and overall health:

RECIPE #2: Healing Root Salad

2 cups Burdock Root
½ cup Carrot
1 tablespoon fresh Ginger
½ cup Vegetable Soup Stock (can be made from vegetable bouillon cubes)
3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons Mirin (Japanese rice vinegar)
1 tablespoon Sake
Sesame Seeds (optional)

Cut the Burdock Root, Carrot and Ginger into thin matchstick slices and place in a pan with soup stock. Simmer for 4-5 minutes. Add the Soy, Mirin and Sake and simmer for an additional minute. Remove from heat, sprinkle with Sesame Seeds, and let sit until cool. Serve at room temperature.

And you know your Wilmington biological and holistic dentists always want you to feel relaxed and calm. Try this third and final recipe to soothe your soul.

Recipe #3: Relaxation Tea

For a quick remedy to ease the mind…
Mix 1 teaspoon of dried Lemon Balm or 2 teaspoons of fresh Lemon Balm with 1 cup of boiling water.
Steep for 10 minutes.
Sip the delicate, minty tea and enjoy.
