October 2012 - Tips, eNews and More!

 
Autumn is the favourite season for many of us. The brisk morning air makes for a perfect walk before we head to work, while the colourful leaf displays seem a fair trade for the shorter days.

Halloween (October 31) is just around the corner, falling on a Wednesday. This means that little ghosts and goblins may be out early in the evening, so be careful as you head home from work or school. Whether you are hosting a get together, attending one, or are just looking for a treat, we've included a recipe that uses in-season local fruits and berries.

What's Your Plan?
Is your dental plan based on the calendar year? If so, your coverage maximums start over on January 1 and your unused benefits will usually not roll over into the new year. That means if you don't use them, you lose them!

Straight teeth and proper bite alignment are more important than just a beautiful smile. Straight teeth contribute to gum health, speech, proper chewing and more. Bite alignment can affect jaw comfort, facial appearance and oral hygiene - and the list goes on.

Remember to be extra careful on the roads and have a safe and healthy month.

Wild Blueberry Tart

 
While the hot dry summer reduced the pick your own apple crops, Autumn blueberries and strawberries are still available at many pick your own farms or can be found in abundance at your local grocery store. Picking your own food can be a fun family outing and allows you to know exactly how fresh the foods you are feeding your family are.

If you can't make it out to the farm for this recipe, we suggest looking for berries that were grown locally in Ontario. This not only supports local farmers but will likely be closer to their harvest date and more flavourful.
