In Japan, many people have varying degrees of anemia caused by hectic schedules and work stress, seriously affecting their health. To relieve this problem, Japanese nutritionists developed several nutritious and delicious blood-enriching recipes for workers.
Recipes for anemia
1. Tomatoes + yogurt
Iron is an indispensable element for preventing and improving anemia and can be easily absorbed with vitamin C. Tomatoes contain a large amount of vitamin C, which enhances iron absorption for blood enrichment. Ripe red tomatoes are extremely rich in vitamin C.
The protein content of yogurt can promote the absorption of iron. Therefore, the combination of yogurt and tomato juice is a good combination for improving iron absorption.
2. Milk diet
Traditional Chinese medicine believes that milk is beneficial for people with a weak physique, indigestion, heartburn, diabetes, constipation, or dry skin.
The following are two milk diets.
Black Rice with Milk Porridge
Ingredients: 250 ml (8.8 fl. oz) milk, 100 g (3.5 oz) black rice, sugar (optional).
Preparation method: Soak the rice in a pot of water for 2 to 3 hours, then cook on medium heat until the porridge is fully cooked. Add milk and sugar. Serve warm, twice a day, morning and evening, on an empty stomach.
This porridge has the effect of replenishing energy, nourishing the blood, and invigorating the spleen and stomach. Regularly incorporating this porridge in your diet will speed up illness recovery, improve postpartum conditions, senior’s energy, help blood deficiency, a weak spleen, and stomach problems.
Parsley + milk
Many people dislike parsley’s unique taste, but parsley is rich in minerals such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, and iron, which helps improve anemia.
Milk can play the role of replenishing protein. After blending parsley, milk, and honey, parsley’s unique taste will be removed, and this drink is beneficial for enriching your blood.
