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?

The Missing Wife

During the past weeks, I am sleep deprived. One factor is the scorching heat that causes my migraine, and second is these rambunctious little monsters. Don’t get me wrong though, they just don’t seem to run out of energy to burn that’s why. I, on the other hand had to struggle myself to relax and take some rest. During the past week, the kids started to sleep in our room. Their room doesn’t have an airconditioner unit for safety purposes. Well, if only the unit provision was located beyond the kids’ reach then I would’ve opted Boboy to provide them one. I guess, this is for the better; it would mean less electric consumption for us and less maintenance for me.


One evening, when the little girl could hardly sleep despite doing somersault in between beds, I went downstairs in the living room to continue editing posts as well as photos. So she won’t be disturbed with the light from the laptop. Then, few hours later when my eyes were already hurting I went in slumber on the couch. Uhm, I have a confession to make though. I had few nights falling asleep on the couch because I enjoyed reading books. I read until I knock out. It’s when Boboy woke up with disappointment only to find out I wasn’t beside him during the night. Haha!

Now we have to bear having rowdy kids in our room in the meantime and the perks of it. My little girl sleeps in between us in the middle of the night and on some good days I found myself having a foot on my chest and sometimes my head and the worse thing that could happen is when we wake up one morning without having any pillows with us.

Anyway, stay hydrated everyone.
