Premier Orthodontics and Smiles Change Lives coming together.

Premier Orthodontics & Smiles Change Lives Evaluation Day Premier Orthodontics and Smiles Changes Lives understand that for many Arizona families, braces are simply out of reach because of financial circumstances. However, we don't believe braces should be considered a luxury. Every child deserves to feel good about their smile!

This year, Premier Orthodontics has committed to help 50 children in Arizona get orthodontic treatment who can't afford the full cost of braces. To help identify these children, we are holding a special Smiles Change Lives event at our Chandler and Arrowhead locations on Saturday, April 21st, 2018. At this event, families can learn more about the Smiles Change Lives program and determine if their child is eligible to enroll in the program. The events will run from 8:30am to 12:00pm.

  • Premier Orthodontics 3160 S Gilbert Rd Suite 1 Chandler AZ 85286 (855) 777-0214
  • Premier Orthodontics 20329 N 59th Ave, Suite A11 Glendale, AZ 85308 (855) 777-0214

Trendy Bowls-Heather Walker

If you go to any restaurant, it seems they want to serve you your meal in a bowl. The trend in bowls is sweeping every food genre, every food culture, and just seems to be the 2018 way to eat a meal. We learn how to take this trendy meal into our own kitchen, so we can have fun with bowls at home.  

-    The "food bowl" trend is ON for 2018 and it isn't going anywhere, especially for the summer as things heat up.
-    Home furnishing stores have some GREAT, affordable bowl options that fit perfectly for this trend.
-    The biggest key ingredient is FRESH; color vegetables and they're usually accompanied by some type of whole grain on the bottom and a protein.
-    The Buddha bowl is vegetarian and is EVERYWHERE at all the healthier restaurants
-    There are entire restaurants dedicated to the Poke bowl, but the seared/raw fish is kind of hard to come by and can be really costly, so we'll substitute it with chicken to make it more kid (Scott) friendly.
-    And there's always a high-end breakfast bowl (usually avocado toast or some kind of deconstructed version of a traditional dish), so we're doing a steak and eggs benedict bowl!  This is a great breakfast for din-ner option with some red wine!

RECIPE: Buddha Bowl
Prep Time: 15 minutes / Cook Time: 20 minutes / Servings: 4
Ingredients:
    2 cups forbidden rice, fully cooked
    1 avocado, thinly sliced
    1 cup edamame

    4 small radishes, thinly sliced
    1 tbsp. each black and white sesame seeds
    1 cup Asian sesame salad dressing
Steps:  
1.    Cook the forbidden rice according to package directions.
2.    Set out four serving bowls and spoon 1/2 cup of forbidden rice into the bottom or each bowl.  
3.    Evenly arrange the avocado, edamame, beets, peas, watercress and radishes on top of the forbidden rice.
4.    Drizzle with the Asian sesame dressing and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.  Serve immediately.
 
Teriyaki Poke (Chicken) Bowl
Prep Time:  15 minutes / Cook Time: 30 minutes / Servings: 4

    2 cups short grain rice, fully cooked
    2 chicken breasts, cut into 1" cubes
    2 scallions, finely chopped
    1 cup shredded carrots
    1 cup chopped, fresh pineapple chunks
    1 cup shredded purple cabbage
    1 1/4 cups Mr. Yoshida's Teriyaki Sauce
    salt and pepper
    non-stick cooking spray
Steps:
1.    Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat to medium heat.  Add the chicken and 1/4 cup of the teriyaki sauce.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes, until the chicken is browned and cooked through.

Steak and Eggs Benedict Bowl
Prep Time: 15 minutes / Cook Time: 20 minutes / Servings: 4
Ingredients: 
    2 cups frozen, shredded hash browns
    1 lb. New York Strip steak
    4 eggs
    15-20 stalks of pencil asparagus
    15-20 small cherry tomatoes
    1 cup Hollandaise sauce (link to recipe follows)
    non-stick cooking spray
    salt and pepper
Steps:
1.    Heat the oven on broil (500 degrees).  Arrange the asparagus and cherry tomatoes onto a cookie sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Season with salt and pepper.  Broil the vegetables for 5-6 minutes until the asparagus and tomatoes are charred.  Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before serving.
2.    Bring a small saucepan filled with water to a simmer.  Add 2 tbsp. white vinegar.  Swirl the water into a circle with a large spoon or ladle. Crack the eggs into a small bowl.   Use the ladle or large spoon to gently drop one egg into the swirling, simmering water.  Cook for 2 1/2 minutes and remove with the spoon.  Set aside until ready to serve. Repeat with the other eggs.
3.    Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat on medium heat.  Add the hash browns and season with salt and pepper.  Heat on medium heat for 7-10 minutes, until browned and crispy. 
4.    Re-spray and re-heat the same skillet and add the steak.  Season with salt and pepper and cook on medium heat 4-5 minutes on each side, until medium rare (135 degrees internal temperature).  Remove from the skillet and allow the steak to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.
5.    Set out four serving bowls and evenly spoon the hash browns into each bowl.  
6.    Evenly add the sliced steak, asparagus, cherry tomatoes and poached eggs.
7.    Drizzle with warm Hollandaise sauce and serve immediately.
