Another one of my cravings... Cinnamon Rolls

My baby and I had some Cinnamon Rolls today... I actually got it at Starbucks... with my Hazel (cold) Chocolate.

I don't know why, but I seem to be craving for sweets these past few months.

First, I had cravings for Mars Bar, like, once everyday. I tried to cut down on it, and eventually, I lost my craving for that.

Then I had a craving for Daim chocolates... I still do actually.

I notice that, it just has something to do with Caramel. Mars had Caramel and now Daim also has caramel. :-)


But now, I just got to have cinnamon rolls... and the more it has that white icing on top... hmmm.... the more I love it. :-)

I know what you're thinking... I really have to go for a Blood-Glucose check... which I certainly have to do this week. My friend warned me that when she was pregnant, she had Diabetes... but was normal after giving birth.

Anyway, I read this article about the benefits of Cinnamon... I just thought of sharing it... for those who loves Cinnamon as well... here's some health benefit for you.


Studies have shown that just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL cholesterol.

Several studies suggest that cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes.

In some studies, cinnamon has shown an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections.

In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.

It has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.

In a study at Copenhagen University, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month.

When added to food, it inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.

One study found that smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.

Researchers at Kansas State University found that cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices.

It is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.



I didn't actually know this... but I enjoy eating it anyway. ;-)

  6. Congrats on your new baby! Just a note - we recommend that women carb load prior to a glucose test, especially if you are not used to eating sweets. So snack up for at least another week!
