Tip: Choosing foods that are local and in season is good and easy advice to follow. Summer (Hot Season) Summer is the season of the big yang and is characterized by the fire phase and summer heat. Heat feeds on body fluids and harms yin. It is recommended to take in predominately cooling, dampness-providing foods (yin food) to disperse heat and build up body fluids. The bitter flavor corresponds to the fire phase, and mostly bitter–cool as well as bitter–cold foods in moderation should be consumed during the hot season.

Smoking rr Smoking supplies foods with yang energy, but less than with grilling. Smoked fish is recommended as a kidney supplement during colder months.

Frying and Roasting rrs Frying and roasting supply foods with yang energy. A good variation of this method in Chinese cooking is the use of a wok with little or no oil added. “Woking” brings foods in contact with extreme heat for a short time only and lends them an outer crunchy layer, but leaves them juicy and fresh on the inside. This provides foods with strong yang energy on the outside and a balancing yin component on the inside. Frying and roasting should be avoided with internal heat symptoms.
