It is one of the favorite breakfasts for natural food lovers and promises a burst of energy to start the day like a lion.
Budwig Cream is a full meal, with great nutritional value.
It provides healthy and balanced nourishment, supplying the right amount of vitamins, carbohydrates and simple sugars.
Tasty and healthy
Soft, velvety-smooth and filling, Budwig Cream gives a great sense of fullness and adds elements to the daily diet that are easily assimilated and valuable for our organism: fatty acids, linoleic acid and lipoic acid, complex carbohydrates, fibers, complete proteins and vitamins.
This creamy combination is healthy because it:
- restores bacterial flora
- helps expel toxins
- stimulates the immune defenses
- rebalances the acidity of the organism
The recipe is named after the pharmacist Johanna Budwig, author of a diet based on the consumption of foods rich in essential fatty acids.
It is also one of the cornerstones of the Method of Doctor Catherine Kousmine, highly appreciated by those who choose naturopathy and alternative medicine.
There are many interpretations of the original, but some ingredients remain the same in terms of properties and benefits, in particular for a healthy intestine.
Let’s see them together!
Linseeds. Linseeds are rich in polyunsaturated fats, like Omega 3 and Omega 6, fibers and proteins.
They are one of the key ingredients of Budwig Cream and are freshly ground. A tablespoon is enough!
Whole cereals. The best are oats because they are rich in iron, phosphorous, magnesium, manganese, potassium, copper and zinc, but it is possible to vary with barley or buckwheat, precious sources of slow-release carbs. Add a tablespoon and a half!
Yogurt. The plain one, which is rich in carbohydrates and quality proteins, is used in Budwig Cream.
Alternatively, you can choose goat’s milk yogurt or soy yogurt.
Put the required quantity in the blender and mix with the linseeds and oat.
Banana. Banana is another key ingredient of Budwig Cream. Blend with the yogurt and add a tablespoon of honey instead of sugar to sweeten. At a nutritional level it provides soluble fibers, potassium and fast-absorbing sugars.
Walnuts, hazelnuts or almonds. Nuts also provide the organism with polyunsaturated fatty acids and proteins.
A handful is all it takes, breoken up by hand or ground with linseeds, according to taste.
Seasonal fruit. When all the ingredients have been blended and poured into a bowl or into your preferred cup, add seasonal fruit in cubes which is rich in fiber, mineral salts and vitamins.
Use fruit as decoration and you will also make this healthy breakfast a “feast” for the eyes.
Lemon. Some recipes require the addition of the juice of half a lemon, preferably organic, to enrich the cream with citric acid, bio-flavonoids and vitamins.
