What to Eat Wednesday: Not So Spicy Salsa

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 fresh and delicious topping for an entree or great to enjoy on its own!Cutting carbs, fat and calories is a big part of maintaining a healthy diet that can keep your diabetes under control, helping prevent or lessen the experience of side effects like neuropathy (a loss of sensation in the extremities that can make your feet tingle or hurt.)

So many times, making those cutbacks also takes your food’s flavor profile waaaay down…but it doesn’t have to! Spice and seasoning can bring back flavor without heaping on calories. Try this salsa with sautéed chicken or fish for a healthful (AND TASTY) addition!
