It is only when I am at my healthiest that I can confidently say my baby receives fresh clean breast milk.
Most of the time, I have this uncontrollable craving for junk food. I eat chips during work so I could think more effectively, or so I thought. I munch more chips when I watch movies or television programs. And more often than not, junk food is my breakfast.
When I became pregnant with Yael, I tried hard to stop eating chips. I survived the challenge and as a reward, now that Yael is all alive and kicking, I am back again to my old habit — chips munching. And this isn’t good for my baby.
I remembered during Yael’s first week, I was able to finish three big bags of Cheetos. And even my mom tolerated my addiction to chips. She bought me the biggest pack of Cheetos when she had her grocery. I was able to consume everything in less than three days. Bad mama.
Now that I am purely breastfeeding my baby, I want to give him only the best nutrition and avoid food that might cause him harm. I promise to myself not to eat junk food anymore. If I am what I eat, then so is my nursing baby.
I try hard to avoid junk food. It is somehow difficult for me, and funny as it may but I think I am having some relapses. To help me cope up and forget junk food, I will try this 100% All Natural Vegetable chip. The label says it has no artificial ingredients, flavoring or coloring. Perhaps, this is a healthier and even delicious alternate to any potato chips minus the fats and all.
I am confident that in no time, I will forget those chips and will fill up my grocery cart with more fruits instead of junk food. It is high time as well to be healthier as I know I will feel a lot better if I eat well. Also, I will be happier to know that my baby takes in no more junk but nutritious food instead.
So to junk food addicts out there, you might want to try these Veggie and Mixed Root Chips. These healthy alternate to your potato chips can indeed satisfy your craving for something crunchy or savory.
How about you, do you have some sort of uncontrollable craving for chips or something unhealthy?? Would love to hear your stories, please, and how you cope up with it.
