Many people have started eating rice dumplings last week. Some may even have a rice dumpling for their breakfast/ lunch. Glutinous rice is the main ingredient of rice dumplings. It is mild in nature. It can nourish qi, strengthen spleen and stomach, relieve diarrhea and reduce sweating. However, it is sticky and greasy. It is hard to digest when you eat too much and easy to create dampness. The fat content of fatty pork and salted egg yolk is high. Therefore, it is better to eat less. You may share a rice dumpling over 1 to 2 meals or share one with your family. Do not eat too much or you will have qi stagnation which can cause stomach bloating even pain. Here is a tea remedy to nourish qi and aid digestion caused by eating starch like rice, noodles and potato.
