Minor Snow Solar Term
This is the second solar term in winter, and its name represents snow in colder climates. Although the southern region has not turned cold yet, it is still cool and dry. Therefore, in terms of health living, you should have more black colored ingredients to nourish kidneys, such as black soya bean and black sesame to protect the yang qi and enhance the warming effect. You should nourish yin and relieve dryness at the same time. Dry weather will reduce the amount of body fluid, which may easily cause dry skin or constipation. Therefore, ingredients that can relieve dryness and constipation are also very suitable for eating at this time.
– Oats rice water can strengthen spleen and relieve constipation
– Honey and fig can relieve dryness and constipation
– Appropriately consume black colored ingredients to nourish kidneys
