Confinement Food

Since 21 March, I’ve been under going the normal confinement treatment, and was advised to adhere for about 40 days. Since that day, I wasn’t in the mood to take pictures nor blog about what I was eating and so on. I was just blogging on my other blog to voice out my thoughts and was hoping that could help me to reduce the pain in me.

Today is my first time take an initiative to take a picture of this dish. Mom cooks this Turmeric Chicken (黄姜炒雞Ayam Kunyit) for me for dinner. She told me that many confinement food will have this Turmeric, cuz, it has its nutritious to heal a woman’s uterus or womb after labour.

Many Chinese women will have this and drink it raw without cooking it.

Perhaps this is mid-wives’ tale, that turmeric could heal a woman’s uterus after labour and perhaps many that had proven it.

Right now, am trying not to think much about anything but to build back my body strength and re-create the magic.
