|Dental Tip: Change Your Brush!
Next time you brush your teeth take a closer look at your brush and ask yourself...
"Is it time to to change my tooth brush?"
If the ends are starting to fray or the bristles are starting to lose their shape, its time for a new brush.
We recommend a soft bristled brush as it is easier on your gums and enamel yet effective enough to remove daily buildup and food particles. The head size and brush shape are also important. You should be able to maneuver the brush comfortably around your mouth, especially when brushing around and behind your back teeth.
It is recommended that you change your toothbrush at least every four months, so if you can't remember when you last changed your tooth brush...perhaps today is a good day.

Pasta is complete comfort without the guilt!
Pesto is a fun, easy sauce to make. It is full of chlorophyll and protein. The miso
and pinenuts give it a "cheesy" flavour. Pesto tastes great on anything
from brown rice pasta and quinoa, to homemade pizza crust, on wraps or simply as a
dip for veggies. If beans are added to this recipe it will give your pasta a hearty
boost of protein and fiber and make each bowl of pasta more filling!
