Budwig Diet Flaxseed Oil and Cottage Cheese
(FOCC) or quark recipe:

Generally, each tablespoon of Flaxseed Oil (FO)
is blended with 2 or more tablespoons of low-fat
organic Cottage Cheese (CC) or quark.

Note: Whenever Tablespoons are mentioned it is
the standard US tablespoon, which is the
equivalent of the British "dessert" spoon.

1 US Tablespoon = 15 ml and 1 British Tablespoon
is 18 ml - 16 tablespoons = cup and 4 tablespoons
= 1/4 cup.

To make the Budwig Muesli, blend 3 Tablespoons
(British dessert spoons) of flaxseed oil (FO)
with 6 Tbps low-fat (less than 2%) Quark or
Cottage Cheese (CC) with a hand-held immersion
electric blender for up to a minute If the
mixture is too thick and/or the oil does not
disappear you may need to add 2 or 3 Tablespoons
of milk (goat milk would be the best option). Do
not add water or juices when blending FO with CC
or quark. The mixture should be like rich whipped
cream with no separated oil. Remember you must
mix ONLY the FO and CC and nothing else at first.
Always use organic food products when possible.
Now once the FO and CC are well mixed grind 2
Tbps of whole flaxseeds and add to the mixture.
Please note that freshly ground flax seeds must
be used within 20 minutes after being ground or
they will become rancid. Therefore, do not grind
up flaxseeds ahead of time and store.
Next mix in by hand or with the blender 1
teaspoon of honey (raw non-pasteurized is
(Optional) For variety you may add other
ingredients such as sugar free apple sauce,
cinnamon, vanilla, lemon juice, chopped almonds,
hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews (no peanuts), pine
kernels, rosehip-marrow. For people who find the
Budwig Muesli hard to take these added foods will
make the mixture more palatable. Some of our
patients have even added a pinch of Celtic sea
salt and others put in a pinch of cayenne pepper
for a change
(Optional) Dr. Harvey Diamond who wrote a book on
the importance of "food combining" and other
experts recommend not mixing fruit with other
foods (they say to eat fruit on its own on an
empty stomach and wait 10 minutes before eating
other foods) If however you do not have any
digestion problems you may want to add various
fruits, especially berries fresh or frozen. No
more than 1 cup of fruit should be added.
(Optional) Add ground up Apricot kernels (no more
than 6 kernels per day). Or you may decide to eat
these apricot kernels on their own

Nausea - Some people get nausea from the ground
flaxseeds, to counter this by taking a small bowl
of papaya immediately afterwards or some fresh
peppermint tea. Also, put a lot of papaya into
the morning muesli too, it may be there is a
special enzymes in the papaya that quells the

The Basic Rule with the Budwig diet is "if God
made it, then its fine and try to eat it in the
same form that God made it". Here are some foods
that many are not sure of, but they are accepted
on the Budwig diet.

Stevia, raw non-pasteurized honey, Xylitol (from
Birch trees), dates, dates, figs, berry and fruit
juices serve as sweeteners.
Herbs in their natural form (pure nothing added)
All nuts (raw unroasted) are fine except peanuts
All seeds good, sunflower seeds are very complete
and filling
Raw un processed cocoa, shredded (unsweetened
Cup of black tea is accepted (coffee beans are
toxic and not recommended)
Any flour is permissible as long as it's 100%
whole grain. Corn is best to avoid because of
mold/fungus and genetic manipulation
2 or 3 slices of health food store pickles (no
preservatives! - read label!)
Freezing cottage cheese /Quark as well as fruits
and vegetables is ok.
VERY IMPORTANT: The flaxseed oil must always be
kept in the refrigerator. It will keep for 12
months in the freezer. Arrange to purchase as
direct as possible from a manufacturer (like
Barlean's) and when it arrives put it right away
in the refrigerator. Or arrange with the local
health shop to keep a supply in the refrigerator
for you.
Drink only distilled water or reverse osmosis

Foods to avoid according to Dr. Budwig

NO hydrogenated oils, NO trans-fats, (instead
consume all cold pressed oils, such as sunflower
seed oil, olive oil, etc)
NO animal fats NO pork (pigs are the cleaners of
the earth and their meat is loaded with toxins.
ham, bacon, sausages, etc should be avoided)
NO seafood (lobsters, clams, shrimp, all fish
with a hard shell are cleaners of the sea and are
loaded with toxins..)
White regular pasta is eliminated, as is white
bread, (Kamut or Spelt pasta and bread is a
better choice than wheat) many patients have an
intolerance to wheat, whole Rye, Oat, Multigrain
bread is good. Corn is very discouraged (because
of mold and genetic modification issues).
NO ice cream or dairy products (other than the
cottage cheese)
NO white sugar, molasses, maple syrup or
NO processed foods (NO store bought pastries),
make your own with our recipes
NO Soy products (unless fermented or used for 2
or 3 weeks at the beginning if you cannot
tolerate the cottage cheese)
Avoid pesticides and chemicals, even those in
household products & cosmetics. Good old vinegar,
as well as baking soda are excellent household
cleaners (look on the Internet for more info)
NO microwave, NO Teflon or aluminium cooking ware
or aluminium foil. We recommend and provide
during your stay at Budwig Center enamel cooking
ware. Stainless steel, ceramic, cast iron, glass
and corning cooking wear are fine


So it appears that the ONLY dairy was the 2 tbsp
of cottage cheese which wasnt' very much and the
rest of the diet was essentially vegan unless
someone else can tell me otherwise?
