Men all hope to have a healthy, strong, aphrodisiac, and kidney tonifying effect in just one bowl of rice. So how can this idea be realized in summer? Today, I introduce the heat clearing and aphrodisiac porridge soup to help you eat strong men in summer! Come and take a look together!
The hot summer is the season when the human body consumes the most. Living and working in a high-temperature environment inevitably affects the physiological and nutritional metabolism of the human body. At this point, the human body's demand for protein, water, inorganic salts, vitamins, and trace elements increases. Firstly, there is an increased demand for protein. Because hot weather causes more sweating, nitrogen loss, dehydration, and increased body temperature can all lead to increased protein breakdown metabolism, which requires an increase in protein intake.
Three kinds of heat clearing and aphrodisiac porridge soup can make you strong:
Stewed Chicken with Danshen
Ingredients: 15g Danshen, 250g Tianji (frog), 4 red dates.
Method: First remove the skin, claws, and internal organs of the field chicken, remove the pit of the red dates, and put them together with Danshen into a sand pot. Add water, bring to a boil over high heat, then simmer on low heat for 2 hours, and add seasoning.

How to do it: remove the core of jujube, cook it with poria cocos, yams, japonica rice and wolfberry into Congee, and add some brown sugar to taste it.

Blood stasis constitution: Slim physique, impatient personality, forgetfulness. The complexion and lips are dark, often with pigmentation, dry skin, and prone to ecchymosis. When brushing teeth, the gums often bleed, and the eyes often have red streaks, making it easy to get restless and forgetful.
High temperature can also accelerate human metabolism, resulting in the loss of a large amount of inorganic salts, trace elements, as well as water-soluble vitamins C, B1, B2, etc. from sweat, thereby increasing the energy consumption of the human body and reducing its endurance and resistance. Therefore, it is necessary to supplement water and nutrients in a timely manner. The principle of nutrition supplement is to give priority to light, refreshing and appetizing food. In meal preparation, attention should be paid to the color, fragrance and taste of food to improve appetite. For example, more cold dishes, Salted duck egg, salted eggs, Preserved eggs, bean products, sesame paste, mung beans, fresh vegetables, fruits, etc. can be properly eaten.
In addition, when making dishes, adding an appropriate amount of vinegar not only increases flavor, but also has the effect of protecting vitamin C, sterilization, and increasing appetite. Through dietary allocation, it can not only supplement the nutritional loss caused by excessive sweating in the human body, but also effectively prevent the occurrence of intestinal diseases. At the same time, it is also beneficial for regulating body temperature and eliminating fatigue. Foods with heat clearing and heat relieving effects include amaranth, water shield, Malan head, eggplant, fresh lotus root, mung bean sprouts, loofah, cucumber, winter melon, watermelon, etc. Especially worth mentioning are tomatoes and watermelons. Eating more in summer can not only produce fluids and quench thirst, but also have a nourishing effect.
Men should also choose to eat millet, beans, lean pork, animal liver, egg yolk, red dates, shiitake mushrooms, seaweed, pears, etc. to supplement lost vitamins C, B1, B2, etc. Elderly people should also pay attention to eating less and avoid greasy foods in summer, and eat more light and clean foods. For frail elderly people, they should avoid consuming cold drinks and raw fruits to avoid digestive dysfunction and disease.
