Chinese Food for Life Care

Chinese Food for Life Care explores traditional Chinese ways of eating, and the Chinese people’s opinions as regards the choices of food in various situations. It discusses a great variety of traditionally consumed Chinese food items, explaining why some items are more popular than others in the country, and why the Chinese people generally believe “food and medicine are of the same origin.” The detailed accounts of the properties of different food items will serve as useful references for making decisions on what one should choose to eat according to his or her own physical conditions.
