Summer barley often drink barley porridge
Spring is coming to summer, and heatstroke prevention and cooling has become one of the health and fitness contents of the public.
Chinese medicine believes that barley has the functions of strengthening the spleen and stomach, nourishing yin and eliminating heat, so it is recommended that everyone insist on drinking barley porridge in the summer.
銆€銆€From the perspective of TCM health, barley porridge has two major functions: one is spleen and stomach.
The second is to cool off heat.
銆€銆€The spleen and stomach are warmer in summer, and the heat is damp, which may cause damage to the function of the spleen and stomach, fullness of discomfort in the stomach, and loss of appetite.
At the same time, the heat hurts the yin, making the mouth dry and bitter.
Chinese medicine believes that barley enters the spleen and the stomach is second.
In the summer, eating barley porridge can enhance the function of nourishing yin and stomach and promoting digestion.
銆€銆€Many people in the summer will feel the heat is unbearable.
In fact, there are two kinds of heat, one is internal heat and the other is external heat.
Air conditioning, electric fans can only help people to relieve the excessive heat of sweating, and barley is cold, which can relieve external heat, but also eliminate stomach discomfort, dry mouth and bitterness and other internal heat.
銆€銆€So, can barley porridge solve the problem by just taking a few drinks?
No, the two big functions of playing barley porridge are not one-off. You must drink barley porridge as a summer habit. Start from Lixia and insist on drinking 4 per week.
5 times until the autumn is cool.
I suggest you drink barley porridge in the morning and evening.
Because the spleen and stomach function of the person has just recovered in the morning, it is not convenient to eat hard food; at night, people need less energy than during the day, drinking barley porridge is conducive to digestion and absorption, and can also play the role of barley soothe the nerves.
銆€銆€The barley porridge is made with half a pot of water, plus a small amount of rice, and the fire is boiled.
After the rice leaves are flowering, replace the barley flour with a cold water into a paste, pour into the pan, stir well, and boil over low heat.
When the porridge thickens, the color turns red.
銆€銆€It should be noted that barley porridge can not be eaten as soon as it is cooked, because it is too hot, it is easy to burn the esophagus, it will hurt the yin; at the same time, it can not be eaten after the refrigerator, because it will hurt the stomach.
Barley porridge should be eaten warm, and then eat it when it is not hot.
