Choose a Tooth Friendly Recipe While Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment

While russet potatoes contain a lot of nutrients, a better choice for your daily menu plans is sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are a healthy food that your orthodontist will recommend to provide these vital nutrients:

• Manganese • Vitamin B6 • Potassium • Vitamin A • Iron • Vitamin C • Calcium

Here Is an Easy Garlic Sweet Potato Recipe for Lunch or Dinner 

Making mashed sweet potatoes is easy, and it will become one of your favorite side dishes for lunch or dinner. Fill a stockpot with water to begin heating it on the stove while you wash and peel several sweet potatoes. Chop the peeled sweet potatoes into chunks to reduce the cooking time. Add a tiny sprinkle of salt to the boiling water before adding the chopped sweet potatoes to the stockpot. Put the lid on the stockpot to hold in the heat while the sweet potatoes boil for approximately 45 minutes.

Serve This Healthy Food Immediately

While the sweet potatoes cook, you can prepare the other ingredients for this tooth friendly recipe. Melt butter in a skillet before adding crushed cloves of garlic, and saute this mixture until it has a golden-brown color. After the sweet potatoes are soft, drain the vegetables. Put the potatoes into the stockpot before mashing the vegetables. Add the garlic mixture, milk and a dollop of sour cream. Continue to mix and mash the garlic sweet potato recipe until it is smooth. Serve your garlic-flavored mashed sweet potatoes immediately.
