Healthy Recipes to Keep You Warm

August 4, 2011

, Baby it’s cold outside! If you’re reading this from a state other than Texas, you might not be aware that today is a big day for us here in Houston. It is snowing! That’s right! Snow in Houston, Texas. Who says we can’t have a white Christmas in Houston?

Because we’re not used to this white stuff down here, most Houstonians will be spending their weekend indoors sheltered from the torrential snow storm otherwise known as an inch or two of snow. While you and your family are huddled up around the fireplace, try a few healthy recipes from our registered dietician, Shelley Johnson. These are perfect for a cozy winter weekend!
 , 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 (16 oz.) jar of your favorite salsa (use El Pinto if on the Yeast-Free Diet)
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tsp. low sodium chicken bouillon concentrate
1 cup canned black beans (add more if desired)
3 oz. Monterey jack cheese (omit if on the Yeast-Free Diet)
6 Tbsp. light sour cream (optional, omit if on the Yeast-Free Diet), Place the chicken in crock pot. In a bowl, stir together salsa, chili powder and chicken bouillon until well mixed.    Pour mixture over chicken. Set crock pot on low for 7 hours. When time is up, shred chicken with a fork and stir in black beans. Continue to cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes or until beans are hot. Serve topped with cheese and sour cream if desired. Serves 6.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
