This 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.
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.
