The nutrition of fresh peppers is more nutritious, and "firepower" is also smaller.Fresh pepper is cooked at high temperature, and the spicy taste will be reduced.
2. Match with cold food
We eat chili, which is easy to cause fire, because peppers are warm foods. If you eat cold food when eating chili, we can play a neutralization role, and it is not easy to cause fire and uncomfortable.
The foods recommended here include bitter gourd, bitter vegetables, lotus root, lettuce, tofu, etc. It is a very good choice to eat in summer.
3. Pay attention to cooking methods
High oil and high -salt stir -fried will offset the disease prevention effect of peppers.Therefore, it is best to eat less oil, less salt, and less sugar when eating chili.
4. Drink matching
We should all have this experience, that is, we have to drink a glass of water after eating chili so that we can not be so spicy and uncomfortable.This is because after we eat pepper, it will stimulate our mouth, and it is easy to cause symptoms such as dry throat and lip. Pay attention to replenishing water.
Therefore, when eating chili, you can eat some drinks, such as chrysanthemum tea, sour plum soup, milk, etc. These can not only relieve spicy, but also clear heat.However, it is not recommended to drink sweet drinks such as carbonated beverages, which will consume too much calories, which is not good for your health in the long run.
5. Match with sour fruit
Eating chili itself can promote appetite. At this time, it can be eaten with sour fruit, which can promote appetite, because sour fruit is rich in tannic acid, dietary fiber, etc., which can stimulate digestive solution secretion, accelerate gastrointestinal peristalsis, and complement each other.Hawthorn, grapefruit, citrus, apple and pear are all good choices.

Patients with kidney disease should consult the doctor or nutritionist before eating peppers, adjust them according to their physical conditions, and formulate a scientific and reasonable diet plan to maintain good health.
