Since Grant my eldest son passed his driving test on Tuesday. Matt and myself have had so much more free time.
It feels really weird one of us not taking them to school. We still get up early to check they have everything before they go.
At the beginning of this year when I first started the metabolic balance, breakfast was my worst meal of the day.
Before this year I never had a cooked breakfast, in fact the thought of it made me feel sick. I always had cereal with plenty of sugar on.
But now sugar just isn’t on the menu. The only sugars I can eat are natural sugars like the sugar in fruit – though I have to watch the amount I have.
For the last few months I have been eating granola cereal with almond milk and since I started to have that I have enjoyed my breakfasts. I have found that I have had it most mornings since.
However it’s not good to have the same every day. Jenny has always said that I need to have a bit more variety. The thing is time, it’s not always convenient to cook a breakfast every morning.
Considering I never liked having a cooked breakfast I am enjoying them. I think it’s because my cravings for sugar are gone now.
What is really good is that it gives Matt and I some nice time together giving us a chance to talk and catch up on things. I do find that sometimes life gets in the way. So taking time to talk is always good.
