Eating right Congee in early summer is appetizing and dampness dispelling


After summer, the days become longer and longer, the city is bright at night, and the night snack market has become lively. Barbecue and seafood Congee have become the most popular night snack choices in early summer. Is "eating night Congee" a "health preserving supper"? Many people have gastrointestinal problems in early summer. How can you choose a Congee that suits you? How can you adjust your body while opening your appetite? We have invited Fan Chunhua, the chief physician of the Spleen and Stomach Department of the Affiliated Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, to assist us. "Night snack" can be eaten, but pay attention to three points. When it comes to the "Congee culture" of Cantonese, we have to mention the word "eating Congee at night". "In Guangdong, Congee can be both breakfast and the best night snack," Fan Chunhua said. In those days, martial arts schools in Guangdong had to practice martial arts after dinner. After practicing martial arts, they usually ate Congee for supper. Therefore, when Cantonese say "eating Congee overnight", it means "practicing Kung Fu". Fan Chunhua said that from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, people who consume a lot of physical strength can take a small amount of Congee at night to strengthen the spleen and stomach, nourish the heart and calm the nerves. "According to the traditional thought of TCM health preservation, it is of course the best to eat three meals regularly and regularly, and eat light food. However, modern life has a fast pace, and people may work overtime at night, or work night shifts. For these people, it is helpful to eat some snacks to supplement energy." Fan Chunhua said that it is not unhealthy to eat snacks, but it is really necessary to pay attention to some health problems: first, it is not advisable to eat more snacks. There is a saying in traditional Chinese medicine about dietary health preservation, which states that one should not be too full at night and should not be too full at night. Secondly, eating late night snacks should be done as early as possible. It is best not to eat two hours before going to bed. Traditional Chinese medicine says "if the stomach is not harmonious, you will feel restless". Eating too much at night not only makes it difficult to digest, but also affects sleep. After finishing the night snack, one should not fall asleep immediately, especially for those with gastroesophageal reflux problems. Once again, there should be some taboos for night snacks. Some foods are not suitable for eating too late. For example, eating seafood Congee at night may cause high uric acid and increase the risk of gout; Also, do not eat foods that can make people excited, such as ginger, astragalus, red ginseng, and other warm and nourishing medicinal herbs, to avoid affecting sleep. Contemporary people have a high pressure of life, and the weather in early summer is changeable, so they are prone to poor sleep. If some lotus seeds, lilies, dates and other ingredients are added to the "night Congee", it can also play a role in tonifying the blood, soothing the liver, and calming the nerves. Congee is a good way to nourish the stomach for people with stagnancy, dyspepsia and poor digestive function. According to Fan Chunhua, Congee is really a good way to nourish the stomach for people with stagnancy, dyspepsia and poor digestive function. When drinking Congee, the stomach basically does not need to grind it, and it can also promote the secretion of stomach acid, improve the digestive ability of the stomach and greatly reduce the burden of the stomach and intestines. This is especially true for patients with postoperative, postoperative, sensitive gastrointestinal function, and insufficient gastric acid secretion. But he cautioned that not everyone is suitable for drinking Congee. People with gastric ulcer or superficial gastritis, and diabetes patients should not drink too much. Congee will stimulate a large amount of gastric acid secretion, causing serious irritation of gastric mucosa and ulcer surface, which will be detrimental to the healing of ulcer surface. Drinking Congee is easy to digest and absorb, but its glycemic index is also much higher than that of ordinary staple food. After drinking, blood sugar rises and falls quickly, which is easy to cause severe fluctuations in blood sugar
