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?

A Closer Walk With The Lord

Aside from going to church and spending time with people who share your spiritual beliefs, there are a few creative ways that you can grow in your walk with God. Prayer is a way that you can communicate with the Lord just as you would a friend or family member. You can pray to Him at any time, talking as though you were on the phone or visiting His house. 



When you think about how to connect with God, think about the ways that you can show who He is to others. Spend time volunteering at a soup kitchen or at an organization so that you can help others. Take a day off so that you can rest and contact people who might need someone to talk to because they don't have anyone else. Unplug your phone and electronics so that you can spend time in a quiet setting. This will make it easier to listen to what God is saying instead of hearing all of the other bits and pieces of information from around the world. 


Consider eating temple food so that you can discover what it was like living in the time that Jesus walked the earth. Instead of eating foods that aren't healthy for your body, enjoy foods that are pleasing to it, such as fruits and vegetables. If you do need a few foods that aren't as healthy, remember to thank God for providing them just as you would for providing the healthy food choices that you have as well. Do a few things to take care of the earth that God has given to you. Plant a new tree in your yard, or plant a few flowers to beautify your yard. You can also coordinate with other people at your church or with your family to volunteer your time to help others just as Jesus has provided for you.
