As any food lover knows, deliciousness is a perfect marriage of taste and texture. Let’s take a plate of pepperoni pizza and fries as an example. Good fries are golden and crispy on the outside, and tender inside. They taste of potato, the oil they were fried in and a bit of salt for flavoring. The awesomeness that is pizza comes from a divine melange of tastes and textures. Crust, sauce, cheese and topping lend many flavors, and we of course expect a delightful crunchy, chewy and saucy experience while eating it. It is the ultimate comfort food.
Now imagine, due to serious dental issues, you could not chew your awesome pizza and tasty fries. Would the loss of the wonderful textures ruin the experience for you.
Well, it certainly would for me. I honestly couldn’t toss this into the trash fast enough, after I took the picture. It also spurred me to add a note to call my dentist this week about getting the night guard we discussed last visit, and cleanings for my daughter & I.
Danica Serves It Up
In order to help bring awareness to the 150 million Americans who did not visit a dentist last year, the lovely NASCAR driver Danica Patrick recently manned a “special” Easy Eats food truck, and gave fans A Taste of the Future. She took orders, and served up some rather unusual “smoothie” style meals, explaining that not getting dental care could result in meals like this. The fans were surprised but educated by these disgusting liquified moosh meals. You have just GOT to WATCH this VIDEO. Danica was hilarious, and the reactions were priceless. I guarantee you will run to brush your teeth immediately after viewing…lol.
Luckily, these vile “meals can be avoided. We just need to make dental care a priority and find an affordable provider. Aspen Dental is one of the largest and fastest-growing networks of dental care providers in the U.S. They provide access to quality, affordable dental care to millions of Americans, helping them keep their mouths “on track”.
