Budwig Protocol, Budwig recipes for your daily nutrition

Continuing with our series of blog posts related to recipes to help our readers enjoy delicious food while following the Budwig protocol and diet, we want to provide you with some ideas for lunches.

Remember that at lunchtime your digestive power is at its best! This is the time of day to make sure you get some raw food in your belly. Raw food is highly nutritious but often hard to digest. This is why we want to try and get some raw food in at lunchtime instead of the evening.

For many in the western world, lunch is a bag of some processed food and a soft drink. This is very sad compared with the French and Spanish that stop work for at least 1 hour to enjoy a proper lunch. If you have only 30 minutes though, you can still enjoy a great lunch; it just takes a little preparation ahead of time.

First we will give you some ideas for the raw part of the lunch which should be eaten first:
