Can be difficult

If you are not familiar with Chinese terminology and healing concepts this is probably not the book for you. Otherwise, it has a lot of interesting ideas.

George Hunter

For a book that claims to be "A Healthy Alternative to the Typical Western Breakfast" of "Chinese Medicinal Porridges" I expected more practical recipes and I was very disappointed. However, it may pique your interests if you want recipes where you "cut open the deer kidneys" and/or are interested in "moistening" your internal organs! What a waste of $20.

Great Foundational Knowledge

This book contains so much valuable foundational information about the Traditional Chinese Medicine eating philosophies, as well as lots of great recipes for congee. A must have for any student studying TCM, but also great for anyone enrolled in an acupuncture regimen and following the traditional eating principals!
