A common question we receive at the office is “what can I eat after I get my braces?”, but we like to answer with more than just a list of approved and not-approved foods. We want to show that eating healthy, delicious food is still possible after you’ve started treatment! While you should always ditch sticky foods, you should also forgo any foods that might cause you any discomfort. There are certain points in the treatment process when your mouth might be more sensitive than usual. Smoothies are the perfect solution for when chewing just doesn’t sound all that fun!
Here are five office-approved recipes that taste great and help make sure you get the nutrients you need each day.
Apple Pie Smoothie from Happy Fit Mama
Key Lime Smoothie from Side of Sneakers
Tropical Green Smoothie from Fit Foodie Finds
Blueberry Superfood Smoothie from The Healthy Maven
Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie from Huffington Post
