After believing that I really had no "sweet-tooth" problem like most people, I felt very fortunate for prefering my coffee black and my carb sources not to be overly sweet (fruits etc.).
So my conclusion was that I was more than likely to stick to my nutritional habits for the rest of my life-I mean if I watch those sweets with disgust almost, how could my diet not be safe for the future?
Then I realized that my usual post-meal habit, of popping one spearmint gum was really starting to get out of hand. Gradually, I started going through pack after pack. Thinking about it, I first thought that what was driving it was probably my preference to having a fresh breath after all the spices and meats/fish I consume.
Then I stumbled onto this article http://www.dorway.com/tldaddic.html
and realized that "fresh" was probably a euphemism for "sweet".
So, the choice is clear-no more gum or listerine strips. Is there any other way though for maintaining a fresh breath without the use of some form of "sweetener"? Never really thought about this before, but is "good" breath bound to be sweet?
parsley is the food most used to help breath - even garlic breath. You could also grow some fresh mint in a pot and chew on that for a few minutes after a meal.
You could just get one of those little toothbrushes and matching, teeny-tiny, toothpaste tubes. Might be a pain lugging that around but it'll get the job done.
Personally, I believe bad breath is the hallmark of fine living. Screw freshness, smelly is the new black folks.
Dan S. - Your philosophy explains so much about the photo...
Alex - I grew licorice, which is great to have as a garnish and does a great job to neutralize the garlic I tend to cook with. I suspect you can fnd a grower to give you a plant or seeds there, but if not, let me know and I will send some non-hybrid seeds to Greece.
