Default Budgie mash...what else could I add to this?

My Boo was a "wouldn't eat anything fresh except apples and strawberries" kinda guy. I didn't push it and maybe I should have, but

Doopty is different and likes food so I'm getting into the making foods for her to have because I know its better for them to eat this way. I making this mix below...I meant to add black beans, but the kind I bought weren't sodium free so I won't be adding those, but I will get some beans for the next batch I make, but my question is...

is this a good mix otherwise? Anything missing that would make it more nutritional...or would the beans have been enough to make it a good meal?


quinoa, chopped up cooked noodles,shredded sweet potato,green pepper,broccoli,cilantro, and frozen peas.

I'd remove the cooked noodles and add vegetables such as kale, carrots etc.

Look at the budgie safe foods list and mix and match for variety.

One of my birds favorite is finely chopped kale, quinoa, shredded carrots, and chopped romaine lettuce all mixed together, I sometimes switch out the kale or romaine with broccoli.

Ok. I just sort of get worried that I won't put the right balance of things into it and she won't get enough nutrients and it'll be all my fault. I wasn't sure how I felt about putting noodles into it, but it was in the recipe I started off of so I put them in there. I'll leave them out next time. =D

Do you guys take the seeds away for a little bit when you offer the mash? I saw a video on you tube where the guy said he takes the seeds away overnight and offers mash in the morning and then seeds in the afternoon until bedtime? Is that healthy to do? Is it okay to leave her overnight with no food? That seems mean to me.

It unlikely that your bird is eating at night so as long as you are feeding her as soon as she wakes up it's ok not to have seeds in the cage at night. My birds always have pellets available and I give them a bit of seed in the morning and evening and I give them their veggies in the morning also. My birds will have eaten their seeds by bedtime so all they have in the cage overnight is the pellets.
