TCM BENEFICIAL FOODS FOR LATE SUMMER
In TCM a building diet is recommended in fall as energies turn inward to prepare for a harsh winter. Since climate is dryer we also need to eat to promote production of body fluids and their lubricating effects throughout the body.
Nuts, seeds, pear, pumpkin, honey, soy milk (non GMO please), onions, apple, grapefruit, lemon and diary are among the recommended foods.
Vegetarians can eat more rice and beans to build them up. Meat eaters can increase, slightly, the consumption of meat. Porridge for breakfast is also a good choice. To help counter the dryness of the season and following the guideline to eat like a pauper at dinner a nightly soup using the above ingredients is also recommended.
