Obviously not everyone is going to come in on patient appreciation day but hopefully we can extend our appreciation for you all year long.
We had such a great time on Pie Day passing out free apple pies. One of our favorite things is to see people get creative transporting their pies home. Bicycles or motorcycles it doesn’t matter. I am curious as to how the pie looked after a ride home in the side saddle bag.
Thank you for entrusting us with your health care needs.

Lasagna is delicious, but it can be a bit heavy with all the white pasta noodles. Here is an alternative that is so easy.
In a large 9×13 pan layer half of your browned meat, half of the spaghetti squash, all of the ricotta cheese mixture, the other half of the spaghetti squash. Then the rest of the browned meat, the last of the spaghetti sauce. Cover it with tin foil and put into the oven.
Bake 350 for 30 min. The sides should be bubbly. Top with shredded Italian cheese and put back into the oven uncovered to melt.
1 spaghetti squash
2lbs. Ground Italian sausage
1c. Low-fat Ricotta cheese
1c. Low-fat cottage cheese
1/2c. Low-fat Italian shredded blend
24oz Spaghetti Sauce
Our kids actually like lasagna better with spaghetti squash. Be sure to pair this dish with some delicious greens.

Many have noticed that the family photo in Chad’s office is a little outdated. My poor husband has begged on many occasions for me to print the new family photo. Chad’s mom has asked for new photos of the kids and I’ve never gotten around to it. I realized that I needed to improve when my sister-in-law printed a family photo for my mother-in-law off of Facebook. I really hate scrapbooking and I am afraid that my kids will inherit a hard drive of photos. However today I’m enjoying the small successes. Thanks to my friend and photographer @chariseprestonphotography I have printed photos for both the office and my mother-in-laws house. Next time you are in the office be sure to notice the current family photo.
Our patients feel more like family.
In the past few weeks we have seen an increase of auto accidents in our office. I know myself, that after a car accident comes the stress of dealing with the insurance company, being without a car, and often hurting. If you are like many, your health will take a backseat to getting your car fixed. I often hear “I thought the pain would go away.” Well the problem with that is it may not go away, and if it does what problems will it cause in the future?
Often we look at the damage we can see to gauge the severity of a wreck. But improved cars with plastic bumpers that are built to rebound after impact, damage can seam very minor. The internal damage to our bodies is something that we can not see. The damage to our cars does not reflect the damage that has been caused to your body. A gentleman that was in my office had been in a roll over that totaled his car, however he himself showed little to no sign of physical injury. While other small fender benders caused severe whiplash. Here are some signs of whiplash to look for:

This time of year everyone has a zucchini they are trying to get rid of but how much zucchini bread can you eat? We love this soup recipe that Missy’s mom would make. It could be even more healthy than this but this is how we like it.
4 tablespoon butter (real not fake)
2 Onions, chopped
8 small zucchinis (you can use large ones)
2 tablespoon season salt
4 c. low sodium chicken broth
1 c. milk (I like to use coconut milk)
1/4 c. flour
Adjust seasonings to taste and serve warm. My mother-in-law would add a spoonful of sour cream to each bowl when serving. We still do this to our kids bowls. For a complete meal add a side of chicken breast and 1/2 c. grains. We like to add the chopped chicken breast and cooked barley right into our soup– not how mom did it but it is healthier than a loaf of warm bread. ♥♥ U Mom
We love hearing about your successes when you come into the office. We treat many different types of athletes and athletes of all ages. I’d like to brag about Tayler a 12 year old patient who recently won the Highly coveted Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Motocross Championship in Tennessee in the girls 9-13 class. She won all three motos declaring her the champion for 2016.
Tayler has been riding since she was four years old when her dad who loved to ride put her on a bike. It is her love for riding that has kept her and her family traveling across the nation competing. Most kids who compete at this level are home schooled- not Tayler! She loves school and her friends and just started 7th grade. Tayler not only rides motocross but snowboards, mountain bikes and crushes it at CrossFit. Her dad says “She excels because of her strong work ethic and her passion. What makes her so great is that she is a shy, humble kid who is not even aware of the award she just won. To her it is just another race.”
Your kids are probably much like Tayler, with a love for a sport that is demanding on their bodies. Let us help prevent, repair and provide pain relief that is drug free and without harmful side effects. Do not let pain get in the way of your goals. Call today 801-569-1141.
