Looking Back at Our #Blog Posts: My Favorites

Pop-Tart Nation

While walking through my local supermarket this weekend, I strolled by the Pop-Tarts aisle to see what was happening in this section.

Food and Faith—There is a Connection

One thing I especially remember from my childhood is my mom’s intense faith and her love of preparing food for family and friends. She passed those values on to me, and today a good part of my day is spent sharing those values with patients in my practice.   When I speak of faith, I’m […]
