" When I first met Dr. Martin, he reviewed my case and said, 'We do what you need.' Plain and simple but very confident. He put me at ease, as did his staff, a wonderful group of people who make you feel like family. They kept me informed about my case and made me very relaxed. Dr. Martin and his staff have been great from the first time we met and at every appointment since. If I had to do it all over again I'd be right here. Dr. Martin and staff make me smile. "

Healthy, Happy Thanksgiving Foods

November 23rd, 2010

Thanksgiving is: a) about the thanks; b) about the food; and c) about the football. As a doctor, I want to concentrate this blog post on the food. If you?re like most Americans, you feel like a glutton after Thanksgiving dinner. And while we would all do well to control our portion sizes, traditional Thanksgiving foods are pretty doggone healthy.

Pumpkin, for instance, is packed with Vitamin A and fiber, and (without all the sugar and cream) it?s low in calories. If you prefer sweet potato pie, you?ll still get a healthy dose of Vitamin C and potassium.

Cranberries are filled with Vitamin C, dietary fiber, manganese, and antioxidants. If you like cranberry sauce, eat up!

Green beans are amazing. They?re low in calories and high in Vitamins C, K, and A, as well as manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, folate, and iron. If you can do without the cream sauce or butter, go ahead and have a double helping of green beans on Thursday.

As for oral health, I always recommend dairy, including cheese, and be sure to rinse your mouth with water after each grazing session (meal or snack).
