Hospital food varies, one of the hospital systems my kid went to in NE had surprisingly good food. The other one had... well, probably not that far from what you ate.For the love of Buddha do not sit on it.
Also bring your own food, because the hospital will try to kill you.
Maybe try a lady dentist? My last couple have been women, and do not appear to be evil.ProTip: MOST "dentists" ARE "evil".
Similsr situation with the one my mom always coerced me towards. No panorex machine, no perio probing. Just tells me that I have periodontitis and that I will lose my teeth. Then just does a regular cleaning on the next visit. Says gums were better, sure, but any monkey with a mirror could see they weren't a normal pink and inflamed still.Dentist who wanted to create 10 cavities where there weren't any, was female.
I came across some cheese sauce that start with making a roux, and that is equal parts flour and fat.^ What is this flour based sauce you speak of? I hate flour based sauces and always find another way.
If it's just cheesy broccoli, if in a hurry I might just use the cheese dip that comes in glass jars, otherwise I typically do a mix of sharp cheddar, velveeta (melts easily and the 2% type has a high protein to fat ratio (for cheap cheese)), and milk. Microwave it to melt, stir, add a little more milk if it's too thick, and it should be a little thin because it will thicken as it cools enough to eat. At the same time it depends on how you cooked the broccoli, I steam it before putting the sauce on, so there is a little moisture to be accounted for when factoring for sauce viscosity, already in the broccoli.
Otherwise, fast food restaurants typically thin real cheese or cheese powder/mix with vegetable oil, or for a more universal substitute for flour based sauces (except not so much when pan browning something for gravy when frying which I tend not to do much in recent years), I'd use corn starch, but corn starch just isn't needed when doing a cheese sauce because water plus protein (however you want to break that down into ingredients, considering the primary constituent of milk is water...) can achieve the desired viscosity without dilluting (and perverting) the flavor with flour.
Maybe it's the velveeta that makes it all work, never tried just mixing water with sharp cheddar...
Exactly why I hate the medical profession. It's turned into an industry focused on maximizing profit rather than caring about human life and suffering. I don't know what they teach these reptiles in medical school these days. Must be really *hitty education/professors. I mean, how do the most intelligent people who have the ability to read/understand thick volumes of dry medical literature turn into such unfeeling apathetic monsters? Education/enlightenment should be doing the exact opposite.Seems sad to state that. I had a great dentist for years but he retired and the next one I went to, tried to tell me I had 10 cavities.... so I got a second opinion that I had NO cavities that needed anything done. Seems EVIL, to drill and fill a tooth that doesn't need it, just so you can make more money.
Given that numerous moms transfer streptococcus mutans to their kids, I highly doubt only "good" oral bacteria going from one mouth to another...My own research on teeth health suggests the following:
Eat pure honey, wasabi, onions and especially finish a meal with a cucumber (it contains nutrients that discourage growth of oral bacteria).
Pomegranate seeds/juice is also good for oral health.
Try to avoid toothpastes containing glycerin (it forms a coating over the enamel that then prevents remineralization, leading to cavities). I've been using organic toothpastes for the past decade.
If you have access to a female mouth, french kiss. A lot. It encourages healthy oral bacterial growth.
Chew gum containing xylitol.
Do oil pulling with coconut oil. It contains an anti-bacterial agent called monolaurin. You need to swish the oil around for at least 20 minutes. It will take with it most of the bacteria in the oral cavity when you spit the oil out. Alternatively, if you have access to a lactating female breast, the milk also contains monolaurin. Don't deprive the baby, though.
Always brush before bed.
When I used to make the cheese sauce in a restaurant it was heating up milk then putting in cheese to melt and thicken it.Do what you want, but I see no reason to put flour in a cheese sauce... unless it's a restaurant, trying to cheap out on ingredients, and suffering the flavor decrease as a result.
Granted, I could eat broccoli without anything added. I like vegetables. After I reduced my sodium intake, everything changed, I started tasting things again.
How about avoiding smooching people in general if they eat diets not conducive to teeth health(which is basically everyone). There isn't much difference between a twinkie chugger, a gatorade sucker, pasta slurper, or a protein bar chewer in terms of teeth health since all the products are sugar'd up.Valid point
Let's revise that to healthy females that are not so attractive that everyone wants to bang them
