A valuable breakfast rich in vital substances awards you with fitness and liveliness and is the best start for the day. Highly recommended and easily digestible is warm millet-buckwheat porridge. You can either bring it to a boil or dash it with hot water if you lack time. You can refine the pulp according to taste and individual tolerance. When put into a box it can easily be taken to work, school or kindergarten. If you are not hungry enough in the morning try a little fresh fruit.
As a second breakfast or snack we recommend for example a slice of wholemeal bread garnished with vegetables and a piece of fruit.
Of course you can once in a while give yourself a Sunday breakfast treat with fresh rolls and an egg. By the way, studies prove that people who breakfast are less frequently overweight.
Also we highly recommend to start your day with a super green smoothie: organic spinach, broccoli, kale, parsley, celery, 1 or 2 apples and 1 or 2 tablespoons of organic oils (sunflower, flaxseed,..) are awesome ingredients.
Particularly people who spend a lot of time sitting down at work need a light lunch. After pizza, French fries or other high-calorie meals many people feel tired and heavy and lack performance for the rest of the afternoon.
At lunchtime the body can best digest salads and raw food. If you additionally eat a warm meal you should always eat the salad or raw food first. This way the digestion is promoted and important enzymes are activated.
If you have no possibility to cook at work you should bring packed lunch from home like e. g. a crisp mixed salad. Vegetables or legumes with potatoes, rice or gluten-free cereal are recommendable. Risotto, millet risotto and polenta are good alternatives to pizza and can be warmed up easily like vegetable, quinoa and potato casserole or vegetable stir-fry. Vegetable or millet patties or the like can also be enjoyed cold.
Nowadays almost every cafeteria has a salad buffet and a wide choice of other healthy meals. Oftentimes vegetarian dishes are also offered. Keep your hands off of large meat servings and oily sauces. Help yourself to a large serving of a side dish like vegetables, potatoes or millets instead. The slow increase of blood sugar level that is characteristic for these foods that rich in dietary fibres brings about a long-lasting feeling of satiety and prevents you from quickly getting tired after lunch.

If people regularly have gastrointestinal problems after dinner they should try to eat little or no cereal, fruits, raw vegetables or salad after 18 p.m. Liver and digestive tract are already resting during this time. For this reason abovementioned foods can not be macerated adequately and start to ferment overnight. In this way toxic metabolic waste develops that burdens liver and intestine. Eat vegetable soups or stewed vegetables with potatoes, millets or quinoa for dinner to avoid this.
If the reduction of weight is first priority for you try to avoid foods with a high amount of carbohydrates in the evening. You can really boost the overnight fat burning by following this advice.
