Recipes for Spleen & Stomach

EARTH > LATE SUMMER > ORANGE/YELLOW/GOLD > WORRY

Weakness in the Spleen and Stomach can manifest as chronic tiredness, physical/mental stagnation or ‘stuckness,’ poor appetite, dull sense of taste, bloating, loose stools, bruising, & excessive worry.

Foods with warming properties stimulate digestion, which is great first thing in the morning! Foods with cold or cooling properties are seen to ‘extinguish’ our digestive fire. The best time of day to nourish the Spleen and Stomach is during breakfast. Think about eating a warm meal that includes some of these.
