Yin Yang Food .~°2°~.

Hi guys and dolls!

Summer holiday is over. While we were waiting and waiting for li'll bits of sun...
I couldn't long more for Thailand. So we keep on dreaming of winning the lotery while Lila Vanille is gone to South-Korea.

Here is my little boy who is growing so hard playing with his nephew in the rain. So lovely!

I did tell u about yin & yang food before, suggesting to eat according to local supplies not shop supplies. I did the exercise already and start buying belgian apples instead of my favorite jazz apples from France.

The second advice on this journey is to look at your geographical location and season.
But before I explain, you need to know yin represents cold and yang represents hot.

yin = cold & fresh
yang = hot & warm

For geographical location advice: in Belgium we live in a cold/fresh area, therefore you must eat more yang food. When you live in Thailand you must eat more yin food. And actually most of us do! yin food can be exotic fruit. So being on holiday or living in Thailand you eat more exotic fruit then here. And don't you love stew in winter when it's cold outside in Belgium? Also when season change adapt your yin & yang balance to the season you're in. Eat salads and fresh fruit (yin) in the summer (yang) and stew, cabbage (yang) in the winter (yin).

Yin Yang food introduction

I promissed u guys I'll take u on a special journey, so here it starts...

Unlike the West, for centuries the Chinese look at what food does to your body once you've eaten it.
We however, look at what's in food before we eat it and decide on that information if it is good for you or not. In general, not according to u being a unique individual.

The Chinese go one step further. They practice food therapy instead of using medicines. I however wants to balance good energy Qi in my body and live healthy. According to natures flow.

And that is what yin and yang is all about. Universal balance.
Can I seduce u just think about this? Perhaps consider going back to nature together with me?

The first thing you need to know and for me it was hard as I grew up in a society where the sky is the limit and everything is possible: but eat according to local natures supply. Not according the offer in shops.
So for this period of time this is fine: fresh potatoes, Artichoke, Eggplant, Cauliflower, Broccoli, celery, Cucumber, Lettuce, Corn, Mushrooms, Paprika, Haricot, Pumpkin, Radish, Beetroot, beans, Spinach, cabbage, Tomatoes, Carrots // Strawberries, Apricots, Apples, Berries, Grapes, Cherries, Melons, Nectarines, Pears, Peaches, Plums

Also for ecological reason, try to keep the origin of your products locally.
