What to Eat Wednesday: All in One Solution

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.

A warming, nourishing, one-bowl dinner solution for diabetics!When life gets crazy, one of the first things that goes by the wayside is home cooking. If you’re living with diabetes, however, eating processed, packaged food can throw your blood sugar levels out of whack (even so-called healthy frozen meals often pack in tons of carbs and sodium).

What to do when you don’t have time to prepare an elaborate, three-course meal? Try this one-bowl-wonder from the American Diabetes Association

Chicken, Pasta and Spinach Soup


 Serves 4

Ingredients

1 (14-ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth

1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes

2 ounces whole grain or multigrain pasta (such as rotini)

2 cups cooked diced chicken breast

1 cup packed baby spinach
¼ cup chopped fresh basil

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

¼ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the broth and tomatoes and their liquid and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the pasta, return to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 6 minutes or until pasta is just tender.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients, except the cheese. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes to absorb flavors and heat through. Serve topped with cheese.
