The recipes in this book are all about how to nourish your body with foods inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine…and our Chinese moms and grandmas! Everything is simple and takes less than 30 minutes and is gluten-free, dairy-free, and incorporates healing herbs.
- Flavorful food. Sweet, salty, savory, spicy… Chinese food can tantalize (yes) our taste buds with all these flavors in balance. Fewer cravings, more satisfaction, and all while getting the best nutrients for your body with healing herbs. Chinese ingredients are super simple, but combined together, create complex flavors and umami.
- Nutrient density. Whole grains, leafy veggies, natural spices, and fermented foods, so delicious and so good for you.
- Sustainable living. We want to make it easy to help you enjoy real, wholesome food from the earth. All these recipes are foods we regularly cook for ourselves and our families that incorporate herbs, seeds, and other healing ingredients.
- Eating with love. As we share and explain in our Intro Guide to TCM, your emotions and organ function are closely tied. These foods are meant to be soothing, healing and supportive for your emotional state, providing positive feedback loops to your body.
