From Traditional Chinese Medicine you learn that on a very hot day you should refrain from iced or cold drinks, because they dampen Qi (Life Energy). On a hot day or when exerteing, you drink something hot, warm, or at least room temp. The reason behind this philosophy is that ingesting a hot fluid will make you hot; thus sweaty, and as sweat condensates, your body cools.
Dinner includes Kimchi Jiggae (Korean Kimchi soup), that I made with the additions of homemeade bone broth and Chinese snow fungus, then pureed for ease of digestion. The other "soup" is creamy pan-roasted broccoli. After roasting, I sauteed it in gacon grease and ghee until the florets were soft, finishing it with fresh, homemade soy milk and cream cheese. Pureed for my tummy and served piping hot alongside my jiggae!
Nothing better than a steaming hot bowl of spicy kimchi jjigae on a 90-degree day, whilst sitting in the shade of pine trees, gazing out at the mountain ridgeline. Makes for a perfect dinner! I will cool off with a little Greek yoghurt that I made earlier!
Crappy phone, oh well. If you look you can see Turkeys!
surprised it is 2020! Holy crap when did that happen!
