Sexy, sacred teeth healing diet

One of the qualities I love about the teeth healing diet (besides the fact that it saved my teeth and thousands of dollars in dental bills) is the abundance of delicious, filling foods that I once considered naughty treats but now prioritize for my health.

Here’s a romantic gesture that doesn’t involve setting sensitive teeth on edge with a box of chocolates. Before sugar became the way to seduce a sweetheart, some of the foods most associated with sexuality, virility and fertility are now recognized as teeth healing. And the most powerful teeth healing foods are those which indigenous cultures called sacred because of their association with fertility, growth and life force.

If you feel like its hard to convince you partner to get on board with ‘healthy’ eating, I’ve put together a tasting menu of savory treats to inspire you and your beloved.

Sexy, sacred, teeth healing foods

Oysters  are not only a well-known aphrodisiac, like all shellfish they are full of teeth healing fat soluble vitamins and are very high in trace minerals.

Caviar, like all fish eggs, is a great source of teeth healing vitamin D- more by weight than most land animal eggs, meat or organs. Traditionally served with salmon which is another teeth healing powerhouse.

Cheese, especially goat cheese is an excellent source of fat soluble Vitamin A which is essential for teeth healing.  Dairy products in general are teeth healing, especially if raw or fermented (fermented dairy products include cheese, yogurt and kefir).

Steak Tartare, made from very high quality raw tenderloin beef mixed with raw egg is a super teeth healing food because the best way to ensure that your body can assimilate essential nutrients and minerals is when you eat animal protein raw.  If you are worried about intestinal parasites from eating raw meat, just freeze the whole steak for 14 days before you make the dish- which must always be prepared at the last minute.

Fumet or fish head broth; this version of fashionable and uber-healthy bone broth  is particularly associated with virility. Made with carcasses and heads of fish it is rich in fat soluble vitamins and minerals including iodine and calcium. Drink the broth as a light clear soup or use as the base for a chowder or sauce.

You might be able to find a fancy French or tapas style restaurant where these items are on the menu or you can prepare them at home. They’re not difficult to make or serve once you’ve found suitably high quality ingredients (which isn’t always easy in some places).  Your teeth, hearts (and the rest) will thank you!

But what about dessert? Check out this blog post where I introduced my favorite teeth healing sweet treat: the anti-cavity candy also known as yummy gummies.
