What's for Breakfast?

I don't know about you guys, but recently the whole clean & healthy eating trend also got to me and I have to say: It's so good that I started it! To be honest, I didn't even know that there are so many delicious and easy options that fill you up and benefit your body at the same time! But to make it to the point: Today I have some breakfast options I did for myself in the past few days and perhaps you will see some ideas you haven't tried yet. Of course, many of these variations can also be combined because the perfect breakfast consists complex carbohydrates, protein and vitamins, that you find for example in fruits. So; Bon Appetite!

Avocado Toast: 
1 slice of whole-grain bread / spelt bread
1/2 avocado
1 tbsp lemon juice
black pepper
chili threads

An avocado is high in healthy fats which protect your heart and support overall health. It gives you also energy and a long satiety.

Banana and Yogurt Parfait:
150 gram plain yogurt (organic)
1 banana
2-3  tbsp granola 

The banana gives you a lot of energy and builds strong bones by increasing calcium absorption.

Smoked Wild Salmon and Whole Grain Roll:
1 whole grain roll
1 tbsp bell pepper parfait (cream cheese)
40 gram smoked wild salmon

Smoked salmon provides a source of essential minerals, including iron as well as high-quality protein! But: Smoked salmon is also very high in sodium so I would recommend to avoid other sources of sodium for the day!
