Soup to clear heat after sun exposure
We might not develop a sunburn or heat stroke after playing under the hot summer sun, but there is a high chance for us to feel dizzy, get a headache, have tightness on the chest, experience dryness in the mouth, and feel exhausted after being exposed to the pathogenic factor of the summer-heat, as the body is not able to effectively dissipate heat under such a condition.
It would be great to consume soup that can clear the summer-heat. Melons and gourds such as winter melon, old cucumber, zucchini, and Gassho melon are harvested during summer. They all have heat-clearing properties and are suitable ingredients to make soup with lotus leaf, which can dissipate the summer-heat, clear the mind and brighten vision, and lower the cholesterol levels. This soup is especially suitable for individuals to consume during the hot summer season.
Tips on ingredient:
Poria with Hostwood is mild-natured. Calms the heart and mind, strengthens the spleen. Suitable for all body types.
Astragalus root and blighted wheat soup with millet
Effects: clears heat and dispels dampness. Reduces bloating and aids weight loss. Relieves symptoms such as fatigue, heavy limbs and fat.
Ingredients: 1 bunch of watercress(around 1 catty), 600g winter melon with skin(around 1 catty), 3-4 dried scallop, 30g coix seed, 15g poria with hostwood, 2 candied dates
1. Rinse all ingredients thoroughly. Watercress is prone to small insects so soak in salt water for 20 minutes, then rinse again with regular water. Cut the winter melon into large chunks.
2. Combine all ingredients with 2500ml of water in a pot and cook on high heat until boiling. Turn to low heat and simmer for 1 hour. Add salt to taste.
