Congee is a traditional medicinal dish in many Asian cultures. Being warm, nourishing, and easily digestible, it is commonly used to support a new mom after birth, anyone recovering from injury or illness, or struggling with chronic digestive weakness.
I like to believe we all want to eat well. We want to fill our bodies with nutritious foods that satisfy our hunger, stabilize our blood sugar, support a healthy metabolism, and keep us upbeat, energetic, and youthful. I also believe that we are in over our heads with work, family life, and other time commitments. When time is limited, our daily to-dos take priority over nutritious diets.
Regardless of your busy schedule, adding these 5 foods to your daily routine is achievable and worth the minimal effort they require.
While adding these 5 foods to your daily routine doesn’t give you license to spend the rest of your day eating junk food, my hope is that they can be gateway foods to a more nutritious diet once you realize how simple and beneficial it can be to eat healthy.
