Morning Quick Fix

Just got back home from giving the kids a lift to school. I felt very hungry and my stomach was ready for breakfast. I was looking for a quick fix since I have no time to cook.  I immediately made coffee to give myself some boost for the chores waiting ahead. Then I spotted a jar of cookies on the kitchen counter that I baked 3 days ago. It's a dark chocolate chip cookie, so soft and yummy. Then the battle begins in my head. To have or not to have a cookie for breakfast? It's really hard to decide not to have it since I know how good it was. However, I care about my health and the quality of breast milk I'll be producing, and to live up to the example of what I blog about. I decided to have a peanut butter sandwich instead. Peanut butter is high in protein and a good energy source to start your day. My bread was whole grain with sesame seeds on it.  I guess I made  a good choice. Some of you might be asking why I drink coffee when I am breastfeeding. Pregnant or nursing moms are allowed to drink 1-2 cups of coffee a day. I only drink one and If I decided to have another cup in the afternoon then I go for decaf. Coffee has health benefits too and just like any food when taken too much can give you a health risk.

  9. One thing that I am not fond of doing is baking, so we seldom have cookies at home unless it's a store bought.
