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?

Today : A Is Sick

Yesterday my little girl woke up calling “Boboy” instead of the usual “Mama”. Then, I went back to bed because I only got 3 hours of sleep then. But she continuously poked my eyes, which means, I have to get up and get going.

In the afternoon, I decided to give ‘em a little treat since it’s a weekend. We passed by the grocery and grabbed some ice cream. But, I noticed she has colds! Uh oh. An hour after, she’s feverish already and was already bothered by her colds. So I had to tuck her and make her sleep.

When she woke up from her nap, she was completely fine except she has runny nose and still feverish. But she still looks fine and was running around again in the living room. Then after dinner, I decided to give her medicines for her colds. It’s a struggle having to make her drink medicines. So I took out jellies and told her she can have one after drinking the meds. She was able to drink the two but the third one was a struggle. D was holding already the cup and tells her sister, “A, drink it it’s yummy.” But few minutes later, she went sick. I noticed her worrisome face as well as D. “Mama, A sick.” Uh oh. D was continuously convincing her sister to take the medicines to make her feel better. I was tad worried too at that moment but since D was showing compassion to her sister, I felt much better. The worries vanished in an instant.
