June 20, 2012 By Leanne Vogel March 29, 2017Have you ever experienced one of those weeks where nothing is moving as it should? Your digestion is slow, your tummy is cramped, and you swear you’ve never been this bloated ever. I know, it may be a bit embarrassing to admit or talk about, but everyone goes through it at one time or another…. I promise. I’ve suffered from my fair share of digestive complications. Anytime I’m stressed, overwhelmed, or upset about something, my digestion takes a hit. The smallest bit of anxiety can throw everything out of whack for me. The most recent blow to my digestion is coming from the transition I’m making from my full-time marketing job to a life of full-time blogging and nutrition consulting. I’m ready to begin the next chapter, but having committed to staying at the office until the end of July, all of my dreams and aspirations are on hold until August 1. It’s left me feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, and generally unhappy. When life gets like this, my digestion flares up leaving me with a tight belly and a busy mind. While incorporating meditation, breathing exercises, journaling, and healing foods generally helps me through these moments, I’ve felt like something was missing. That was until a reader asked me whether or not I thought budwig cream would be a good breakfast for her and her family. There’s nothing better than receiving a question about something you know nothing about. Each question is a new opportunity to learn and I spared no time in figuring out what this budwig thing was all about. Turns out the stuff is pretty darn nutritious. Healthy fats + detoxifying ingredients + and fiber power = a healthy and balanced breakfast in my books! I decided to try out the basic recipe, subbing the cottage cheese for non-dairy almond yogurt and enjoying it with a couple of soaked almonds and fresh fruit. I’ve had a bowl every day for breakfast since so figured it was about time I share this life changing recipe with you!
