  1. I like this recipe! The ingredients are easy-to-find and the whole thing is very simple to make.

    Also, carrots and cabbage are good for you. Aside from benefiting your eyes, carrots also act like a toothbrush to the teeth, wiping away excess bacteria and plaque. They also stimulate saliva flow which is vital to the maintenance of oral health. Plus, the vitamin A and C found in carrots strengthen gums.

    Cabbage is also rich in vitamins and minerals like calcium which helps build the enamel. It also has folic acids for the prevention of gum disease.

    I will definitely try this out! By the way, any recommendation on what can be a substitute for apple cider vinegar? Thanks!

    All the best,
    Danica
