Typically for a western diet, we evaluate our foods for proteins, calories, carbohydrates, vitamins, and other nutritional contents.
For a Chinese diet, including healthy TCM-centric meals, one looks beyond the vitamins and minerals. With Rejuven, healthy Chinese meals are now available via delivery.
Healthy and nourishing Chinese meals will also look at the energetic properties of the food. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), foods are just as herbs that can be selected and prepared appropriately to tonify, cleanse and regulate the body. With the right preparation by Rejuven, one can rejuvenate the body with healthy meals.
Post surgery nourishment with TCM healthy meals is also recommended and available via Rejuven.
The energies of foods refer to their capacity to generate sensations – either hot or cold – in the human body. The five kinds of energy are cold, hot, warm, cool and neutral, and this refers not to the state of the food but its effect on our bodies.
You may have heard of Yin and Yang.
For example, tea has a cool energy, it means that when we drink hot tea, it generates cool energy and it is therefore considered a cool beverage. Shortly after you have drunk hot tea, the heat begins to fade quickly and it begins to generate cool energy internally, allowing your body to cool down. Ginger is warm in energy and warns the body upward and outward.
It is important to know about energies of food because different energies act upon the human body and affect our state of health.
If a person suffers from cold rheumatism and the pain is particularly severe on a cold day, eating foods with warm or hot energies will relieve the discomfort considerably.
A person that suffers from skin eruptions that worsen when exposed to heat, it is most beneficial to eat foods with cold energies to relieve the symptoms.
To seek a balanced diet, we can define food predominantly as Yin or Yang.
If you eat predominantly Yin foods, your body will be capable of producing more yin energy – darker, slower-moving and colder. In contrast, eating predominantly yang foods will produce more yang energy- faster, hotter and much more energetic.
How do you tell what’s Yin or Yang food? As a simple thumb rule:
- If it grows in the air and sunshine, it is probably yang
- If it grows in the earth and darkness, it is probably yin
- It it is soft, wet and cool, it is more yin
- If it is hard, dry and spicy, it is more yang
