Chicken Vegetable Soup That Is Simply Delicious!

I created a chicken vegetable soup that was so lip smacking good that I just have to share it.

Personally, I find that cutting a huge ripper can be extremely satisfying yet most would find my thoughts on the subject appauling. Intestinal gas remeides may be in…

Acute Pancreatitis and WHY Diet Is Important

Until I found out how important diet was in regards to acute pancreatitis my life was pure hell. I remember having acute pancreatitis while living in a small University town. I had been diagnosed by this time and I had a job selling cars at a Chevy dealership. I had NOT told anyone when I applied that I was sick.
