According to Chinese Medicine, our kidney's are home to our Jing Essence, or life force. A woman's Jing Essence is her blood and a man's is his sperm. Black foods help nourish our kidneys as they are both associated with macrocosmic winter season and our microcosmic internal winter, or menses. This is a recipe that will support your cycle in any phase, but will especially love on your next bleed.
