Nutrition – the 5 elements Cuisine

Nutrition plays an important role in TCM and belongs to one of the three Qi sources. Our western experience with diets, vitamins and calorie calculations is certainly not on this 2000 to 3000 years old level yet. Central to the Chinese cuisine is considering food as a medicine. Chinese eat  ENERGY. TCM does not think in terms of vitamins, minerals and calories as we are used to do in our Western World.
