Vegetarian diet is not necessarily ‘cold’
A lot of people wonder if a vegetarian diet is comprised of vegetables only, wouldn’t that be too cold? According to Chinese medicine theories, all ingredients have their nature (cold, hot, and mild), and vegetables are the same. For example, bitter melons are cool in nature, hairy gourds are mild, pumpkins are hot. If you are careful with your food combinations and choose mild-natured vegetables, being vegetarian will not lead to body being cold.
Cooking methods can also alter nature of ingredients. Pan-frying, deep-frying, stir-frying, baking, or grilling will make the dish become hot; steaming and boiling does not change the food nature.
Cold natured vegetables: bitter melon, winter melon, old cucumber, cucumber, bean sprouts, bak choy, spinach, water spinach, tomato, eggplant, asparagus, bamboo shoot, raddish, chestnut
Mild natured vegetables: corn, chayote, hairy gourd, carrot, potato, sweet potato, taro, choy sum, Chinese kale, cabbage, bean string, beetroot
Warm/Hot natured vegetables: pumpkin, onion, cilantro, chives, spring onion, ginger, garlic, chili pepper, basil, garland chrysanthemum
