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?

Sinabawang Tuna Chunks With Malunggay


For the past week, I have been under the weather. The sudden change of climate made me suffer


from rhinitis. Even if I am not feeling well, I don't want to compromise how I take care of the kids. That's how we are moms right? We still try our best to take care of the family. 

Anyway, because I want to uncomplicate things at home, I made a simple dish which you can whip for only 10 minutes of your time, healthy and delicious. You know very well that my children loves fish and soup so much that they want to eat it every single day of our lives. To make everyone else happy, I added malunggay leaves to boost my milk supply and make my little girl happy as well. Leaves for her is life. HAHA.

RECIPE:

Ingredients:


1 can Tuna Chunks (Gold Seas)
Onion, quartered
Garlic, pounded
Tomato, halved
Malunggay leaves 
Kalamansi
Salt to taste

Procedure:

1. Boil 500ml water. Once it is already boiling, add onion, garlic, and tomato.
2. Add tuna chunks, let it boil for one minute.
3. Add malunggay leaves, let it boil for one minute.
4. Add kalamansi and salt to taste.
5. Serve. 


You can use other brands of tuna. I prefer this one because the tuna is not shredded. Oh, the one in the photo is dried malunggay leaves. Mom always brings me dried malunggay leaves whenever she visit and I just stock them in the pantry. Her malunggay leaves tastes way better than those that I buy here in the market.
