Confinement Food Journal - To eat your vegetables or not?

I guess many mothers out there whose MIL are doing the confinement may not introduce vegetables in their diet because it's considered "cold". And the chinese believe that after delivery, all mothers are very prone to cold and wind which will have side effects on your spleen and stomach.

However my confinement nanny believes that some vegetables is actually good for health and some of the vegetables which she has introduced into my diet are:
  • Kailan or Kale (chinese broccoli) is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin A, and is good for improving joints and lymph.
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Sweet Potato leaves (she said that books have written that it can increase milk supply), just like green papaya.

so new mothers. Be open minded and eat your veggies!
