Blueberries and wine
According to the protocol, the benefits of the mixture can be enhanced by increasing blood flow so that the chemistry gets to where it is needed. I like to use blueberries, however the protocol allows a small (whiskey glass size) glass of organic red wine. This is contentious but it is in the Cookbook.
Here are a few suggestions I have tried but do try your own - remember this is an experimental site!
Fruit and Fibre
- (for diabetics) Sprinkle a couple of shakes of cinnamon in the base of a large cereal bowl
- A tablespoon of protein powder (pea, oat, hemp?)
- A couple of tablespoons of ground linseed
- Sugar free muesli up to about 1/3 the way up
- A tablespoon of different seeds - pumpkin, sunflower, etc.
- Chopped hard fruit (apple, pear,etc.)
- Chopped soft fruit (strawberry, nectarine, etc.)
- 2x table spoons of the Budwig Mixture
- Pour on any milk of your choice
Put these 3 in first to avoid them floating to the top when you put in the milk
Fruit on Toast
- Toasted Vogels linseed and barley bread (or wholemeal and oat)
- Spread with the mixture
- Sliced fruit on top - banana is nice
- Sprinkle with seeds (pumpkin?)
Blueberry Ice Cream
- 1x or 2x Tablespoons of the mixture
- Similar quantity of blueberries from frozen
- Stir together and leave until the blueberries are partly melted and the mixture solid
Budwig and Baked Potato
- Use the Mixture as you would butter on your baked potato
What to eat: Any fruits, salads and vegetables; seeds and nuts - especially eaten raw or lightly cooked. High Omega 3 products like oily fish and Omega 3 eggs. This is not a vegetarian or vegan protocol, just be sensible about quantities and quality. Cook with olive oil or coconut oil (expensive) or (if you can work it out!) the Oleolux recipe from the Budwig Cookbook
Important What to avoid: Anything containing or cooked with hardened (hydrogenated) fats. This might sound a bit harsh but it relates to the theory. So: avoid fast foods, processed meats, most commercial bakery products (biscuits, cakes, pastries, pizzas, crisps, processed bread (though I eat Vogel's bread), margarines and mayonnaise, granulated sugar. Think...has this been cooked industrially at high temperatures and / or is this likely to contain hydrogenated fats?
Omega 3 tablets
It is not recommended to take Omega 3 as a tablet.
