Trading carbs for veggie alternatives is all the rage these days. Using eggplant slices in place of ordinary pizza dough not only reduces calories, but it’s also better for your smile. That’s because the starch in regular crust can transform into a gummy paste, get stuck in your teeth and break down into sugar. Eggplant is rich in vitamin C, which is important for maintaining healthy gums. Basil contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and other health benefits. And cheese is packed with enamel-strengthening calcium and is considered one of the best foods for your teeth.
