Nutrition plays a central role in the development of diseases. Highly processed foods with plenty of additives, isolated carbohydrates and sugars, low-quality oils and little to no vitamins and minerals – this is the fuel for inflammatory processes in the body, which are reignited and kept burning every day with “low-quality” and “worthless” foods.
Natural foods with their colorful mix of vitamins, minerals, secondary plant substances and especially omega-3 fatty acids offer the best protection against inflammation. These can provide excellent help in keeping the “conflagration” in check or even extinguishing it.
These wonderful fruits are also called Chinese gooseberries or kiwifruit and are originally from China. However, they are now cultivated worldwide and are available all year round. They contain twice as much vitamin C as oranges and lemons and therefore prevent the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy. Just one kiwi is enough to cover the entire daily requirement of vitamin C. The tropical fruit contains minerals such as calcium, potassium and iron as well as dietary fiber. In addition, kiwis are rich in carotenoids and magnesium. Most importantly though they are simply delicious!

An apple a day keeps the doctor away . . . So it is perfect to eat them for breakfast as apple scrambled eggs. Ingredients: 1 portion of eggs 1 apple Splash of water Salt Vanilla Cinnamon
Preparation: Wash and core the apple and chop or grate it. Heat a pan and cook the apple for a few minutes until soft. Whip the egg with a splash of water and season with vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pour the egg over the stewed apple and let it set. Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving. Enjoy!
“Breakfast – the most important meal of the day” – has always been a controversial topic, especially since there are differing expert opinions and observational studies. On the one hand, the team “no breakfast is a no go” argues that a balanced breakfast stimulates the metabolism and provides the body with the energy it needs to start the day efficiently and focused. Furthermore, you can prevent cravings and thus avoid constant “snacking”. This is saving calories in a simple way and at the same time preparing the body for the day ahead.
On the other hand, the “omit the breakfast” side believes that it is easier to maintain your weight with no breakfast. Longer fasting breaks (intermittent fasting) should give the body and organs more time for recovering and regenerating. This can also have a positive effect on blood pressure, blood sugar and blood fat levels.
In the United States, nearly one in four adults leave the house without breakfast because they may not be hungry or because they don’t have the time.
Fast breakfast options might be the right solution here, which can be varied in a fantastic way and are also well suited to take on the go! For example, overnight oats can be prepared the night before in a jar and then eaten on the way to work. Another great option are smoothies, which can be quickly prepared. It’s also ideal to take to the office for a late breakfast.
