#1 I finished writing the first draft of my paper!!! 😆 If I had to spend one more day on that, I’m going crazy! Obviously, I’ll have to spend few more hours on editing and making it more readable, but that’s going to be easy 😉
#2 Last week’s TCM series touched a dirty topic, but why not? why we don’t talk about it? It’s soooo important to you! If you go to a TCM doctor, he’ll ask you about it in <5 sentences. “do you sleep well? how’s your appetite? are your bowels moving? what’s the consistency?” At first you might be shocked that he’s asking you that, but then after he explains you the importance of it to your overall health, you’ll get used to it. In your second visit, you’ll be talking about “it” with details and all! So, let’s talk.
Q1: How often do you go to bathroom?
I used to be very constipated, like once every 3-4 days. Nowadays, once-twice everyday.
Q2: What’s your trick to make things moving?
I’ve tried tons of methods in old days. These are some that worked for me:
1. soak flaxseed (1-2 tbsp) with 1 cup of water overnight and drink the whole thing first thing in the morning
2. soak dry prune (4-5) with 1 cup of water overnight and drink the liquid and eat prunes first thing in the morning
3. whenever things gets really bad. I’ll do a mini detox with consists eat only oatmeal cooked with white fungus for a day.
4. coffee helps a lot.
5. EAT! if you eat like chicken, you’ll poo like such.
- brown rice
- black bean
- olive oil
- diced tomato
Method: add everything and cook for 1 hours. Done!
It doesn’t look like the picture because brown rice is sticky and the original recipe calls for basmati.
it doesn’t look pretty but it’s really tasty and nutritious!! 😉
accompanied by tofu stir-fry
look what was the helper for paper-writing anxiety? 1 lb of fresh strawberries!!! 😀
It’s soooooo sweet! I love it! But after I finished it, I had a stomach pain! Too much a anything is bad 😦
