Green mung bean soup is a soothing sweet soup and dessert. In traditional Chinese medicine, mung beans are considered to have a "cooling" property, and also are thought to be able to expel toxins from the human body. The beans are also a good source of protein, vitamins, fiber, and minerals. [Photo/VCG]

Careful dieting

Ancient Chinese developed a refined diet to help beat the heat and to find peace and joy during sanfu.

Health experts say in sanfu, it's better not to drink icy drinks or eat much ice cream, as the heat within one's body is usually felt on the surface of the body, not in the internal organs. Eating more vegetables, less meat, and less oily foods are also recommended to make yourself comfortable on those hot summer days.
