What to Eat Wednesday: Chinese Chicken Corn Soup

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.

Try this warm, comforting Chinese Chicken Corn Soup recipe for a quick all-in-one dinnerThis past weekend, I faced a really hard choice. Months ago, I had signed up to attend a podiatry conference in Las Vegas from the 8th to the 10th of September. Then, Hurricane Harvey struck. Now, as the date approached, attending the conference meant leaving behind friends, neighbors and members of my office team to deal with clean-up efforts alone.

Ultimately, I decided to attend the conference and honor the commitments I had made to my colleagues and team members, choosing to stay #HoustonStrong and letting people know how they can help our city.

In between meetings, I was fortunate enough to enjoy some pretty incredible meals. One dish that stood out was the Roasted Corn Soup at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in Caesar’s Palace.

I felt so lucky to be able to sit and enjoy a good meal that I tracked down a similar, diabetic-friendly recipe from the Defeat Diabetes Foundation. I hope it brings you some warmth and comfort in this difficult time.
