Foods to Build Your Yang (Kidney Yang Tonics)

 

Cooked foods or room temperature foods are beneficial

 

Avoid cooling foods such as fruits, raw foods, excessive salt and use seaweed cautiously. A little of these foods are good to protect Yin. So try to get some in daily, just limit these foods.

 

I usually throw some Arame (sea vegetable) in when I make quinoa or rice it is good to protect Yin, and helps build the

blood.
