As Chinese practice of giving birth, mothers are recommended to go through postpartum seclusion — called zuo yuezi, or, in Mandarin, sitting the month. During this month, mothers heal through food, with heavy chicken stocks, and well balanced meals of poultry, beef and pork. Knowing that one of my older sisters is going to visit my baby sister, who just had a baby, I got up early in the morning to whip up some healthy food suitable for new mothers. Here are some I made a couple of weeks ago.
