CheckCheckCin:現代人飲食選擇精彩豐富,當生病時聽到醫生囑咐「飲食清淡」便聞風喪膽,總覺得「無啖好食」甚至以為要食素,其實都是錯誤的觀念,從中醫角度來看,飲食清淡有以下幾項原則: 如不清楚自己體質屬性則多吃屬性平和的食物,以減少食物偏性對臟腑的影響;烹調時保持食材的原汁原味及營養;多採用蒸、煮、灼、燉的烹調方法;減少使用油、鹽、糖等調味料;煮至容易入口及消化的質感;避免肥甘厚味,即油膩、甜膩及味道濃郁的食物;避免發物,即會令舊疾復發、新病加重的食物。



Are plain congee and vegetables the only choices after surgery?
“My family member is preparing for surgery. The doctor recommended a light diet post surgery. Are plain congee and vegetables the only option?”

CheckCheckCin: Modern people have a rich and varied diet. When they are sick, they tend to over react about the light diet suggested by doctors. They always think that they can no longer eat any tasty food or even think that vegetables are the only option left. In fact, they are wrong. From Chinese medicine perspective, light diet has the following principles: use mild natured ingredients if you do not know your body type to reduce the effect of food natures on the organs; keep the original taste and nutrition of the ingredients during cooking; use cooking methods such as steaming, boiling and stewing; reduce seasonings such as oil, salt, sugar; boil food down to a texture that is easy to eat and digest; avoid oily and fatty food, which is greasy, sweet and heavy-flavoured food; avoid stimulating foods, it will lead to relapse of old issues and worsen new symptoms.

After the surgery, if you eat plain congee and vegetables for every meal, it is quite light but there is not enough nutrition. As the patient need to absorb different nutrients to strengthen the body after surgery, the choice of ingredients should be diversified, the most important thing is to match the body condition. Here are some good suggestions.
・Tomato soup with potatoes and scorpionfish
・Sweet potato congee with dried scallops 
・Rice noodles with fish soup/ fish fillet congee / macaroni
・Sauce from stewed beef or pork
・Steamed pork cake rice
・Steamed egg rice
