Woman making a heart with her hands over her stomach

Middle Burner Bliss

Digestion is a key to good health, balanced emotions, mental clarity, and even spiritual well-being.

Welcome to middle burner bliss! Breakfast Cure is committed to bringing home the wisdom of warm cooked food to those who often have never heard the idea that cold, iced food and drinks may be at the root of digestive distress. We know that overnight oats are all the rage, but we know how much better the whole grain oat groats taste compared to oatmeal. Why not slow-cook whole grains overnight instead of chilling them in the fridge? Give it a try and see if you get a big “Thank you” from your stomach and intestines!

In Asian culture and Chinese medicine, in particular, it is well understood that too much cold, raw food will put out the fire of digestive and slow metabolism, sometimes to a creeping crawl. Luckily, it’s pretty simple to turn things around and start building a glowing, stable digestive fire.

Congee is the perfect food to bring to the rescue especially when eaten to break an overnight fast. The first thing to enter your belly is ideally warm, soothing, moist, and comforting. That’s congee! Soup is great too. One of the lovely things about congee is that it can be eaten savory, sweet, or neutral.  We love to enrich congee with digestion-promoting and energy-building herbs and spices.

Pour Into Slow Cooker and enjoy middle burner bliss

There are times when we all need a little extra support.

If you are experiencing the side effects of stress combined with an overly cooling diet, then you are not alone. You probably notice some bloating, belching, loose stools, or constipation, and likely some tiredness and even discomfort in your stomach or intestines. In this case, it’s time to grab the ancient texts and pull out a tried and true formula that has stood the test of time.

Both food and herbs deliver a beautiful balance of yin and yang. Each provides warm, Spleen-supporting ingredients and builds the yang energy of digestion as well as providing plenty of moistening fluids to keep the balance of drying and moistening, hot and cold, and yin and yang. We took it a step further and teamed up to bring you all the goodness in one awesome little package.
