What’s for Breakfast?

HealthyBreakfast

What did you have for breakfast this morning? Was it toast with jam, bowl of fibre rich cereal with milk, muesli, yogurt, protein shake, bacon and eggs, muffin, coffee, cigarette and a coke or NOTHING!

The amount of food I accepted was my way of showing love, as this was how love was expressed to me. I sometimes find myself doing the same with my sons.

I am now more aware of expressing my love through kisses and … [Read more...]
