Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day. What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

Family Day Fun

I have been meaning to go to Salcedo/Legaspi Village Market/s which are open during weekends. The purpose of going to these markets was to buy fresh produce which are not found in malls and markets and the gastronomic experience with the family.

It was a weekend that J wasn't so busy and finally we pushed through. But because everyone of us woke up late, meaning 10:00 in the morning, we arrived there past lunch already and was the peak of the scorching summer heat. My little girl was still sleepy but my little boy and J went to the playground already while my sister and I went around the stalls and my eyes feast with the fresh produce they were selling. Pardon some of my photos, lost some of it because my fone didn't cooperate with me.



After roaming around the stalls, I got hungry and realized that since we arrived late some of the menu were already not available so I ordered food that I don't prepare at home. LJ enjoyed the freedom of playing in the park along with other kids. As usual, he is scared of heights so whenever he came past thru the stairs, he takes precautions by holding the rails (well at least he knows how to take precautions).


Hoping to have more weekends like this.
