Here is some advice for people in the Frost’s Descent period. As everyone knows, Frost’s Descent is high time for the occurrence of chronic gastritis and gastro duodenal ulcer disease. People should eat more pears, apples, onions and gingkoes. Chestnuts are also a good nourishing food during this period.

Chestnuts have a warm nature and sweet flavor, and are good for nourishing the spleen and stomach, invigorating the circulation of blood, relieving coughs and reducing sputum.

It’s better to choose chestnuts without cracks, because the sand and sugar will become caramel when heated at a high temperature and turn black over time. This unhealthy black caramel can stick on chestnuts with cracks. Besides roasting chestnuts with brown sugar, there are many other ways of making chestnuts delicious. The following are some recommended methods.

For people with weak kidneys, soreness of the waist and flaccidity of the lower limbs, eat 5 dry chestnuts or 30g of cooked fresh chestnuts once every morning and evening. This is helpful.

For people with weak breath and the coughs, it’s better to cook chestnuts with lean pork and ginger and eat only once every day.

For people who have diarrhea caused by cold and weak spleens and stomachs, making porridge with 30g of chestnuts, 10 dates, 12g of Tuckahoe and 60g of rice is a good choice. Brown sugar can be added while they are eating.

In addition, because chestnuts are rich in Vitamins, they are good for people who have angular stomatitis, glossitis and cheilitis. Eat roasted five chestnuts once and twice a day. This can help relieve these symptoms.

Although chestnuts are a good and healthy food, they should not be eaten too much. Don’t eat more than 60 g of chestnuts in your life, especially if you are a child or a poor digestive function.
