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!
Lunch without a midday slump: What really helps against the midday slump?
The midday slump after lunch – who doesn’t know it? Tiredness and lack of concentration are often accompanied by cravings. However, it is possible to influence the severity of this lunchtime slump.
Helpful practical tips
- Drink enough – about 1. 5 liters a day.
- Pay attention to regular meals – 3 meals
- Light foods, such as vegetables and salads, combined with protein-rich foods such as fish, meat, eggs or nuts.
- Sweets are best eaten immediately after the meal.
- A small digestive walk after the meal at a leisurely pace.
“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.

Living your best life includes the parties, the celebrations, the coffee with a friend, the afternoon ice cream with your kids. It’s about learning what you can get away with and what you just can’t! But it also means that you’ll consistently get back on track and look after yourself too.

With more and more people heading back to the office, a stressful workday can mean that healthy eating habits go out the window. When we are busy or stressed, we often reach for foods that are high in sugar and fat, like processed foods, fast food, and ready-made meals. Although these are often convenient options they just are not that healthy.
Here are some simple tips to help you stay on track :
– Plan ahead and create a good routine
– Schedule time for healthy eating
– Don’t skip meals
