What to Eat Wednesday: All Dressed Up

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Jazz up an all-veggie salad like this one with 4,3,2,1 dressing!Pretty much everyone I know needs to incorporate more vegetables into their diet—heck, even when I was briefly a vegan, I probably still didn’t get enough greens. But, while eating your veggies is important for everyone, for diabetics looking to maintain a healthy weight and control blood sugar, it can be crucial.

Here’s the thing, though—sometimes it’s hard to get excited about eating a salad for lunch…but not when you add on this fabulous 4…3…2…1 Dressing (even the name is fun!) from the American Diabetes Association. Try it tonight and see your side-salad jump straight to the main event!
