Here are some more suggestions for the Budwig Diet breakfast. All are rich in omega-3, tummy-friendly fibre, minerals, vitamins and natural antioxidants. It is an essential element of the Budwig diet or a super-nutritious replacement for conventional breakfast cereals and mueslis for anyone trying to improve their health. You can vary it endlessly with different fruits, nuts, berries and spices.
Budwig Muesli Ingredients
- 2 tablespoons Linseeds (brown/bronze or golden)
- 1 portion of Quark-Linseed Oil Cream (made from 100 g quark and 45-50g cold-pressed linseed oil thoroughly blended and optionally sweetened with 1 teaspoon honey, )
- A portion of raw seasonal fruit chopped
- Spices to taste
- Nuts, berries, freshly made juice, spices to taste
Grind the linseeds to a fine powder in a dedicated electric coffee grinder and place in a bowl. Add chopped fruit. Mix the quark-linseed cream with any spices you fancy – cinnamon, fresh or dried ginger, vanilla extract are all good – add to bowl. If you would like the cream to be softer simply stir in some skimmed milk or freshly-pressed juice and spoon over the fruit and ground linseed. Top with berries and nuts. JB particularly recommends Brazil nuts, which contain lots of selenium, and walnuts. She also suggests pine nuts and unsweetened coconut which can be raw or shavings (but not sweetened).
Try making your muesli with these combinations added to your basic Budwig cream:
Autumn Fruits: Bronze linseed ground. Chopped apple, and add
ground vanilla to the cream and ground cinnamon to the linseed, top with blackberries and hazelnuts.
Multicolour Fruits: Gold linseed ground. Chopped pineapple and mango. Add freshly grated ginger to taste, top with strawberries and blueberries, coconut shavings and Brazil nuts.

Eton Mess Use strawberries, raspberries and sliced banana. Add vanilla extract to the FOCC, top with berries and chopped macadamia or walnuts nuts.
Trifle: Use chopped bananas and raspberries as the basic fruit, add a few drops of vanilla extract to the FOCC, drizzle the ground linseed with a little Amontillado sherry sweetened with stevia to taste, top with more raspberries, fresh red currants, if available, and chopped pistachios or very lightly toasted almonds nuts.
