Preparation of the Kousmine method, perfect for breakfast, brings proteins, carbohydrates, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, is very satiating and prevents loss of energy during the morning, the fiber presence ensures a proper bowel function.
The Budwig Cream is a basic preparation of the Kousmine method, developed by a Russian doctor, Catherine Kousmine, who, in order to understand the progressive spread of degenerative diseases, studied the effect of nutrition on health. The Kousmine method was born thanks to these studies and, even though it is not scientifically recognized, it has the merit of putting on the same level diet and health that we know nowadays are intimately related. To understand this connection we recommend, among all the books that speak about this, the book Anti-Cancer, written by doctor David Servan Schreiber. The Budwig cream is a perfect recipe for breakfast, it is a dish rich in nutrients, proteins, fiber and energy thanks to carbohydrates, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids useful to control cholesterol levels, antioxidants against free radicals, vitamins and mineral salts to face the day at best. The cream is very satiating, so if you are not used to have a rich breakfast, try to halve the doses. At first glance the cream preparation process may seem long but actually with some practice it will be really fast. The recipe, created by Dr. Catherine Kousmine, is prepared by mixing in a bowl 125 grams of cow’s milk yogurt or soy yogurt, which can be replaced with 100 grams of ricotta cheese or 75 grams of tofu, the juice of half a lemon, if organic some grated peel can also be added, 2 teaspoons of honey or half ripe banana, 1 tablespoon of freshly ground flaxseed obtained with a coffee grinder, 1 tablespoon of oilseeds, not roasted, like almonds, hazelnuts, nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds , sesame seeds, that should be ground with a grinder together with a tablespoon of raw whole grains chosen among oats, buckwheat, barley or rice. Finally add 100 grams of a seasonal fruit you like. Pour all the ingredients into a mixer until you get a cream to eat. Flaxseeds contain traces of hydrogen cyanide derivatives, but in a so small quantity that this isn’t a problem, especially if you take just a couple of tablespoons a day. However, the advice is to stop the intake of flaxseeds for one month per year and during this time you can use cold pressed flaxseed oil, you can add two teaspoons to the cream. The cold pressing process does not release the hydrogen cyanide, which is a result of chewing and grinding. Finally, the fruit can also be added at the end without the need to grind it with the rest of the cream.
