Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Soup - A Digestive Tonic

Making top notch soup doesn't require formal training or a pint of heavy cream.

Many marveled at his understanding of the biomechanics of human movement and his wealth of experience in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

I strongly considered pursuing one of two or three coveted orthopedic residencies with Dr. Jones upon graduation, but decided instead to move to rural Alaska and run a clinic on my own. Read more about Getting Clear On Our Why
