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?

Cooking With The The Chefs at San Miguel Purefoods Kids Kitchen Camp

Three years ago, I remembered my son telling me he wanted to be a Chef when I asked him what he wanted to be when he grows up. I did not influence him of anything and out of the blue, he just told me, he wants to be a master of the kitchen. He is a picky eater, he doesn't like vegetables and fruits and limits himself to more protein food that I serve him during mealtime. I may probably be a pushover mom for wanting him to eat vegetables and fruits, but I am doing this because I know it is for his own good. 


One way of encouraging children to eat and try something new to their palates is to let them prepare their own meals. The reason why I want to involve my eldest in the kitchen. He knows how I exert effort in preparing their meals that is why, he tries his best to eat whatever I serve him, only that he would limit what he eats to all protein. It is quite frustrating, but, I know soon I will be able to let him. 



Last Saturday, my son had the chance to experience cooking with the Chefs at Makati Diamond Residences as organized by San Miguel Purefoods Culinary Center. In its 24th year, its aim to instill a love and appreciation for food and cooking while introducing various San Miguel Purefoods Products that can help in preparation ease and enhance skills of young budding cooking enthusiasts. 

"If kids are much more involved in food preparation, then they truly get encouraged to eat more, which promotes good nutrition, plus they learn cooking early, a very important life skill" says Llena Tan-Arcenas, the Community Services Manager of San Miguel Pure Foods.
