Yang Boosting: How to cook beef for the best yang boosting effect?
Some people like to eat meat dishes, but they are afraid of being fat. Is there a way to have the best of both worlds? A famous doctor has an idea: if you cook meat and vegetables together, you can eat less meat and vegetables, and the nutrition of vegetables is better.
From the perspective of nutrition, meat and vegetable collocation is complementary, while from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine health care, reasonable meat and vegetable collocation can also enhance the efficacy of dietotherapy.
Zhang Jianling introduced several meat and vegetable "golden partners":
Beef with potatoes: Beef has high nutritional value and can strengthen the spleen and stomach. Eating beef in winter can also warm the stomach, but the beef fiber is thick and can stimulate the gastric mucosa. Put some potatoes to protect the stomach, and the nutrition of potatoes is also very good; Beef and taro can nourish the body and relieve constipation.
Mutton with Ginger: Mutton nourishes blood and warms yang, ginger relieves pain and dampness, and is paired with each other. Ginger dispels the fishy smell of mutton, helping mutton play its role of warming yang and removing cold; Mutton and yam can nourish blood, strengthen the body, and relieve constipation; Add cilantro for appetizing and aphrodisiac.
Fish with Tofu: Fish is rich in methionine and low in phenylalanine, while tofu is the opposite. Eating both together can complement each other's strengths. Tofu contains a lot of calcium, which can be used to improve the absorption rate of calcium by the body with the help of vitamin D in fish. It is suitable for the elderly and pregnant women.
Chicken with Chestnuts: Chicken can enhance the hematopoietic function of the human body. Chestnuts focus on strengthening the spleen, which is conducive to absorbing the nutritional components of chicken. It is best to simmer chestnuts in Laomu chicken soup.
Duck meat with yam: Old duck can replenish human moisture, replenish yin, dissipate heat, and relieve cough. The yam has a stronger yin tonifying effect. When eaten with duck meat, it can eliminate greasy and replenish the lungs.

Pork is a "versatile" meat dish, paired with winter melon and lily, which has a moisturizing effect; Add kelp to remove dampness and relieve itching; Add pumpkin to lower blood sugar; Add bean sprouts to diuresis and reduce swelling.
