Kitchen Medicine: Winter Cooking with Nishanga Bliss

“During the winter months, all things in nature wither, hide, return home, and enter a resting period…this is a time when yin dominates yang. Therefor one should refrain from overusing yang energy….Desires and mental activity should be kept quiet and subdued” (Huang Di Nei Jing).

Winter break is a wonderful time to return to the wisdom of the kitchen, cooking deeply nourishing foods to restore our kidney qi and support core immunity. Join Nishanga by Zoom in her kitchen and cook along at home in this free offering for winter wellness. When you register, you’ll receive an ingredient and equipment list so you can make a Savory Vegetable Broth (vegetarian alternative to bone broth, with Chinese herbs as an optional addition) and Sesame Seaweed, both recipes from her book Real Food All Year: Eating Seasonal Whole Foods for Optimal Health and All-Day Energy. You’ll be inspired to deepen your practice of self-nourishment in this darkest time of the year.
