White Dew Solar Term
During the solar term of white dew, the temperature difference between day and night is more dramatic and you will easily see condensation on plants. It’s quite poetic. It is still quite warm in this beginning of autumn, but once the sun has set, the temperature will be cooler at night. Be prepared with multiple layers of thin clothing so you can take some layers off when it’s hot and put it back on as it cools. This difference in temperature also leads people to catch colds easily. Try to avoid cold and raw foods normally to keep your spleen and stomach functioning normally. This will also help to boost your immunity. It will also start to become dryer so you can moderately consume foods that can moisten the lungs and nourish yin.
Suggested foods: pears, snow fungus, honey, American ginseng, lily bulbs, lotus seeds, almonds, fritillaria
