One aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) involves food therapy, where different foods have different thermal effects on the body such as heating, cooling and neutral.  You can then use these different foods to take care of your own health. For example, according to TCM, there are are skin conditions that may be caused by too much “heat”. Some people with these skin conditions will then benefit from eating more foods which have a “cooling” influence on the body.

This yummy dish contains “cooling” mung bean noodles, tofu, cucumber and watercress. The addition of slightly “warming” ginger and garlic also help with digestion.

Sesame paste and oil are deeply nourishing. They are packed with protein, magnesium and other nutrients, and add a wonderful depth of flavour to the dish.
