(unsuitable in case of damp shire, retan)
After a long winter, perhaps everyone is looking forward to a warm spring. I am adding a few recipes for inspiration. In the spring, suitable foods are fresh, light, juicy, so that we can sufficiently nourish yin of the liver and kidneys, especially people such as wood – tendons, weight loss. This will reduce the increase in the internal wind of the liver. Suitable are, for example, celery, celery tubers, anise, black sesame, quality oils, gooseberries, fresh spinach leaves, artichokes. For types with yang xu, cold-blooded, exhausted after winter, often colds, we still add naturally sweeter dishes and heat slightly. Suitable are, for example, meat broths with short-boiled spring vegetables and cereals, legumes with root vegetables with the addition of a small amount of sprouted seeds (alfalfa, radish).
Buckwheat, bryndza, a piece of butter, green tops.
Boil buckwheat according to the instructions. Heat a small amount of butter in a pan and fry the buckwheat, crush the brynza on top and sprinkle with green leaves on the plate to taste.
Analysis according to TCM:
Buckwheat – cool nature, sweet taste, tropism – spleen, stomach, large intestine. Effects: digests food, harmonizes the stomach, strengthens the spleen, removes moisture.
Brynza – warm nature, sweet taste, tropism – heart, stomach. Effects: strengthens the centre, warms the heart, gives birth to fluids. (The cheese is concentrated, salty brynza, therefore only a reasonable amount, in excess it promotes the formation of hot mucus, beware of returns and gallbladder problems).
