Lotus Root and Peanut Soup is a very common soup enjoyed by many back home. Lotus root combined with peanuts is believed to be very nutritious and have all kinds of health benefits especially in winter season.

莲藕花生汤是在家乡时经常喝的一道汤品,莲藕和花生熬的汤尤其适合冬天的时候喝,冬天喝汤能养生。

中医认为藕性寒、味甘,是一款冬令进补的保健食品,既可食用,又可药用。 生食能凉血散淤,熟食能补心益肾,可以补五脏之虚,强壮筋骨,滋阴养血。同时还能利尿通便,帮助排泄体内的废物和毒素。对于肝病、便秘、糖尿病等一切有虚弱之症的人十分有益,对于淤血、吐血、衄血、尿血、便血的人以及产妇极为适合。不过因为藕性偏凉,故产妇不宜过早食用,一般产后1-2周后再吃藕为好。
