As practitioners of life cultivation, we like to eat foods in the form of soup or stew. Foods in these forms are easy to digest and absorb and that is good for older people like us.
We hereby offer some soup or stew that are easy to make and offer certain benefits to maintain our body health. We classify them into soup that is beneficial to our blood, soup that is beneficial to our stomach, soup that is beneficial to our kidneys, soup that is beneficial to our lungs, and soup that will calm our mind.
These soups tend to help to moisturize our body and skin. Thus it is especially beneficial for us to eat in Autumn and Winter when the air is dry.
