World Nutella Day 2010

World Nutella Day Menu February 5th 2010

I noticed this online event through Twitter several months ago and could not resist participating when the time came. I got a little ambitious and decided to create an inspired menu based on the classic, hazelnut chocolate invention.

Feel free to indulge in the recipes below, for all of them are fairly easy ideas to make at home. For more information, visit www.nutelladay.com to spread the w

My cosmetic dentist boca raton strongly advised me to stay away from sweets as much as possible but I really can't resist this. I mean, they named a day after Nutella! Who would want to just let it pass?

These sweets are so tempting! I hope it wouldn’t cause too much stain in my teeth, because I just had my session with my dentist in tooth whitening new York clinic.

I love eating Nutella so much that now I have full mouth dental implants because of tooth decay. I'm not blaming Nutella cause I'm responsible for my actions. Besides getting implants was good for me in a way, I will not have to deal with tooth decay anymore.

The only thing we have to keep in mind is that, we are what we eat. All of the foods that we are putting inside our stomach reflects on our body's nutrition.
