One of the essentials of the Budwig Diet: Cold-pressed linseed oil and extra virgin coconut oil
Lots of easily digestible nutrition and one of the best vegan butter alternatives; if you want a tasty butter alternative you can’t do better than oleolux. It looks like butter, rich and yellow and spreads straight from the fridge. It’s vegan, very simple to make and needs no cooking skills nor any special equipment. One of simplest vegan “spreads” you’ll find. It is also a good paleo “butter” and tastes good on veggies.
A simple & delicious way to make meals tasty
Johanna Budwig created this delicious, fresh-tasting blend of linseed (flaxseed) and coconut oils lightly enhanced with garlic and onion for use on the Budwig diet. It’s savoury, rich and tasty and a great addition to meals on the Budwig Diet. A dollop of oleolux enriches soups, baked potatoes, risotto or any steamed veg. Add oleolux and a little sprinkle of cayenne pepper too and you’ll make any meal more interesting.
Oleolux is a combination of two of the healthiest fats and rich in omega-3
Coconut oil has a great reputation for health, it’s a rich source of medium chain fatty acids which are an aid to a healthy immune system. Linseed oil is a super source of omega-3. 10g of oleolux gives you a whopping 2g of omega-3. Oleolux also contains two other superfoods, onions and garlic are rich in allicin, a sulphur compound with amazing health benefits.
An important part of the Budwig diet
It’s an important part of the Budwig diet, Johanna Budwig recommends it for evening meals and as an option with lunch or when having the occasional slice of bread. It’s satisfying, adds calories to give you energy without adding carbs and helps keep blood sugars stable.
