Yin Yang Food .~°3°~.

Good morning all!

The new academic year is starting and it is quite bussy at work as thousands of students arrive in Leuven. A warm welcome to all of them!

A new lesson in yin and yang food: It is recommended to eat mostly neutral food during every meal and less pronounced yin and yang food. As neutral food provides balance.

This is a list of neutral food:
Fruit: tangerines, oranges, blueberries, plums, coconuts, figs, currants, grapes, raisins, apricots, pineapple and papaya.
Vegetables: carrots, string beans, sea vegetables, potatoes, olives, celery, beets, pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, okra, shiitake mushrooms, black beans, lapwing beans, Chinese cabbage, peas, cabbage, cauliflower, black mushrooms, beetroot
Fish and Meat: beef, chicken, pork, pork liver, goose, duck, beef liver, brains, carp, sturgeon, whitefish, mackerel, herring, sardines, scallops (Saint-Jacques), oysters
Nuts, Seeds,...: Seeds, nuts, hazelnuts, rice, brown rice, pearl barley, cereals, bread, tapioca, carob, vanilla, milk, cheese, peanuts, peanut oil, almonds, cashew nuts, pecans, white suger, honey, maple syrup, nutmeg, oats, sesame, sesame oil, olive oil, coconut oil, shepherd's purse, saffron, yolk

In the meantime I'm still reading and learning a lot about yin and yang food. And allready questions pop into my head where I need to find answers. One of the questions is: When the balance of your food diet leans often to intens yang food for example, one can get chi accmulation, reduced or reversed chi. Nowadays groups of people eat too much junk food, does that means that some populations have malfunction chi?

Just think about it....

Yin Yang is minder mijn ding, maar leuk en interessant dat je je er zo in verdiept! Dat is zeker een uitdaging. En je hebt weeral heerlijke en mooie dingen zitten maken de voorbije maanden :)

Je bent terug Lila! Welkom (o;
Ik vind het echt iets speciaal en hoop er echt veel over te leren. 't Is in ieder geval een oude traditie die wij zowat ongewoon vinden maar er zit logica in.
Ik ben super benieuwd naar jou ervaringen de afgelopen tijd. Ik kan er alleen maar van dromen momenteel
