Mental Health and Dental Health


Are they actually related?

The connection between mental health and overall physical health has been extensively studied, but not much focus has been placed on how mental health and dental health can affect each other.

Mental and dental health are cyclical, where poor mental health results in the neglect of oral hygiene, which in turn can result in social anxieties and self-esteem issues. One of the most obvious mental health issues that directly affects oral health is dental anxiety.

Zesty Quinoa Salad


This bright and colorful salad is a great summertime recipe (or anytime you want to feel like its summertime). Light and citrusy, it's a whole new way to enjoy quinoa. Lime juice and cilantro give it a refreshing kick, while quinoa and black beans serve as tasty vegan protein. If you're not vegan, add even more protein by adding chunks of chicken or turkey. Yum!
