Has been feeling unwell for the past week with bloated stomach and flu, loss of appetite is unavoidable. Simple food such as porridge with some Chinese herbs to cleanse the body, with heavy seasoning to counteract the blandness of the palate.
Mix long-grain and glutinous rice grain to cook porridge. Glutinous rice contains more protein and fibre that helps to promote the peristalsis along the alimentary canal while clearing the wastes and toxins in the body.
Boil the grains in water till boiling and add in a piece of du zhong and 4 sticks of dang shen (cut into smaller sticks) and chicken fillets. Cook porridge till soft. Add seasoning.
