The Breakfast is the most honest Moment in our lives. Therefore, I call it the Uli-Hoeness-Moment. Whether we like it or not – at Breakfast, we keep ourselves in a mirror, in front of the verpennten eyes and realize how important we take ourselves and our body. And that can be damn hard. Who wants to pick up early in the Morning, a lecture from the Department of attack on the topic of healthy nutrition?
Clever Food Mix in the Morning
However, instead of “FIFA” on the Playstation, we should play more often, the Breakfast Manager. This is because the first meal of the day, we can determine our culinary Team and the tactics for the rest of the game is crucial. With a clever combination of first class proteins, multipart carbohydrates, and many Plant fibers – better known as roughage – can I charge my battery with fresh energy and me up for lunch at a constant high Level through the everyday move: balanced, focused, and productive.
In the past, my Breakfast habits were more like the Girlfriends of Leonardo DiCaprio – interchangeable and very sweet. And I confess: today I’m under Stress even sometimes the Breakfast sins. The half Butterbreze that I bummed yesterday by a colleague, and three cups of black coffee at eleven o’clock in the morning are pretty much the opposite of a perfect first meal. Please don’t get me wrong, I pretzel love Butter! But you don’t even have the nutritional value of the Cessna aircraft, the Frenchman Michel Lotito (1950-2007) was eating over two years neatly, to Breakfast, to make it into the Guinness book of records.
Less fit and creative without Breakfast
A modest food-based I-mutant in Creative Meetings (I am currently working as a writer on a TV Comedy production) to a deeper spiritual plane. Of my mind, Uli Hoeness, I’m going to get a dressing down: “shit on Your mood and your creativity – you’re responsible!” He’s right. Because the human brain is like the dog of my friend Olli: It eats without end. Although the brain represents only about two percent of our body weight, it consumes a quarter of the total energy budget. The Option of Even not having Breakfast is not recommended, therefore, from a Business perspective. The explanation is so simple that the Americans have even a word: Man is hangry. A bad-tempered mix of hungry and angry.
So a perfect Start in the day
If I want to get fit, start idea rich and in a good mood the day, I need to have Breakfast as my ausgeschlafener colleague, the all call only a professional killer because of its high Gag hit rate. Also exemplary of his favorite Breakfast consisting of an omelette is, in fact, like with spinach and Feta cheese, sometimes with ham. Whole grain bread, and unsweetened herbal tea. So a vitamin and mineral looks rich Breakfast, that makes up for lunch, tired and by the way, our immune system strengthens. The hot tea stimulates the metabolism, which then ensures the ideal utilization of protein, fat, and sugar.
Even better: fresh aufgebrühtes ginger water, an important Breakfast ingredient in Indian Ayurveda art of healing. The sharp tuber has an invigorating effect on the circulatory system, immune system and digestion. After the ginger water, a little Yoga Session, and the body, the first pounds burns calories already. After that, it is really awake and has an appetite for Healthy – for example, a balanced Yogi-Breakfast and spicy Mung-Dal-soup. Easy to digest. And extremely rich in protein.

Mung Dal from controlled organic cultivation, there are in the trade. Alternatively, this soup can also be made of husked red or yellow lentils to recover. Here you have to note the slightly shorter cooking time.
The specified vegetable can, depending on the desire to replace it with other vegetables of the season. Tip: So that everything is ready at the same time, you should have the varieties have a similar cooking time, and cut into small, equal-sized pieces cut. Ideal for vegetables, which is also suitable as a raw food is. Including the pumpkin falls by the way.
