Start the day right

Good morning! :)

First of all I want to give you a closer look of what kind of diet I try to conduct. I am vegetarian and part-time vegan and I attempt to eat 'clean'. So what does the word 'clean' in the context of eating stand for? Eating a clean diet means that you are consuming products/food found in their most natural state - so everything that is a 'convenience product' or has any artificial additives or comes with any ingredients you are not able to pronounce is probably not clean (of course there are some exceptions). This may sounds a bit confusing or difficult for your everyday life but actually it isn't. I admit that it takes time to understand the reasons and the background of these eating habits, though it represents that kind of diet which has been applied in former times, because all of these 'modern' products we have now, haven't been existing back then.

To make it a bit more comprehensible I will give you an example of a very delicious breakfast, which is done very fast and provides you with important nutrients to start the day right ;)
