Steak, Good For Your Teeth?

The American Dental Association endorses steak! So here is a reason to eat red meat without feeling guilty in the slightest.

Read meat contains phosphorus which helps protect tooth enamel and bone. In addition, eating “challenging foods”, or those that make you chew a lot, helps to strengthen jaw muscles.

Here is a healthy steak recipe that is very popular in Argentina.
