The Dr. Budwig diet and Food Plan.
A balanced diet for optimum health, flaxseed or linseed oil and cottage cheese
The Dr. Johanna Budwig food plan allows you to enjoy many of your favorite recipes while at the same time maintaining a balanced and healthy diet. The principle factor to keep in mind is that now you choose quality food products and natural ingredients. There are many websites that talk about Dr. Budwig and her food recommendations, however not all of them are accurate.
Because Dr. Budwig herself was a vegetarian, her recipes focus on that type of diet. This has led some to conclude that she allowed no fish or poultry in her protocol.
The only ‘meat’ that a patient would consume sparingly would be free range, organic chicken and wild caught fish (fish with fins and scales, such as: Anchovy, Barracuda, Bass, Blueﬁsh, Carp, Cod, Flounder, Grouper, Haddock, Hake, Halibut, Herring, Kingﬁsh, Mackerel, Minnow, Mullet, Perch or Bream, Pike or Pickerel or Jack, Salmo, Sardine or Pilchard, Snapper, Sole, Tilapia, Trout, Tuna or Ahi, Aku, Albacore, Bonito or Tombo and Whiteﬁsh).
You can still enjoy delicious foods like whole grain sourdough bread, desserts, smoothies, salads, juices and so on.
When preparing recipes, instead of using white refined sugar, refined oils, white flour and other products not recommended for your daily diet, thanks to the Budwig food plan, these will be replaced with healthy products such as Stevia sweetener, xylitol from birch trees, cold pressed oils, spelt flour, and unrefined celtic sea salt.
For all our patients we provide the complete Budwig Guide which includes details of the foods to avoid and foods recommended to follow her plan. When using fresh fruits and vegetables, we recommend you use organic produce whenever possible so that you can enjoy the full benefits of all the nutrients and vitamins. It is also important not to fry and cook the vegetable too much. Steaming is the ideal way to get most of their nutritional benefits.
Toxins are one of the main factors that contribute to various diseases, so controlling them is essential. A regular intake of fruits and vegetables helps you to actively detoxify your body, which is a fundamental part of our diet plan.
