5 colors, 5 elements diet 吃五色食物补五脏

In Chinese medicine there is the theory of ‘5 elements-五行’: It states that there are 5 types of body constitutions, and depending on our body constitution, the food we put in our mouths can either fuel us or adversely affect our health. By knowing which body type we fit into based on the five elements; wood, fire, water, earth or metal, we can eat a balanced diet to be healthy and strong. 

中医有五行之说,它指出人体普遍分为五种体质:而根据我们的体质,我们吃的食物可作为良药或毒药。而通过五行,我们也能知道自己偏向哪种体质:木,火,水,土或金;并摄取均衡的饮食以保持强壮与健康的身体。
