In a previous post I wrote about difficulty eating rocket leaves whilst wearing braces.  I didn’t take long to discover a solution, watercress!  As well as being good for you and tasty, I found watercress didn’t get tangled in my arch wires or brackets and very rarely did I find any green pieces remaining after eating.  We eat quite a lot of salad so by the end of three years with braces I think my family were grateful for a change but if you want to enjoy a green salad without worry, give watercress a try.
