Fall is here and with that comes some seasonal traditions! Watching the leaves change colors. Apple picking with friends. Watching Hocus Pocus. Enjoying hay rides. Going to pumpkin patches. Eating too much candy…the list goes on and on. Some traditions are difficult to enjoy when you have braces and that’s why we’ve pulled together some creative recipes so that you can still enjoy the flavors of fall:
There’s nothing like enjoying an apple on a crisp fall afternoon. However, with braces, you have to be careful to avoid apples since they can cause damage to your brackets. It may almost seem like there is no point to joining your friends apple picking this year. But, have no fear, we’ve found the perfect recipe so that you can still enjoy all of that apple flavor without the risk of any damage.
Sweets are difficult to avoid during this time of year. Most of us have halloween candy that lasts us well into the winter. How can you satisfy your sweet tooth without eating candy that can get stuck in your braces? These melt in your mouth pumpkin cookies with cream cheese icing should do the trick! They have just the right amount of sweetness and are easy to make!
If you’re a chocoholic, those Snickers bars and M&MS are probably calling your name…Don’t risk the chance of damaging your braces! Instead, enjoy these double chocolate muffins! Fresh from the oven or packed for lunch, they are a sure way satisfy your chocolate cravings.
Caramel is one of the top things to avoid with braces. It’s a sticky mess that is sure to get stuck in all of the new nooks and crannies on your teeth. However, fall is a time where caramel makes everything better….caramel popcorn, caramel apples, caramel candies. Thankfully, you don’t have to go the whole season without a taste of the delicious fall flavor! Check out this simple caramel apple smoothie. Just make sure you blend the caramel in completely.
