Boosting Qi and Blood= Nourishing your vital flow of energy in your body and boosting red blood cells

Ingredients:

2 free range drumsticks, chicken thighs would work as well

**10 small fresh shitake mushrooms

1 TBLS cooking wine

3 slices of ginger

6 cups of water

Instructions:

Cut drumsticks into one inch cubes, put in hot boiling water for two minutes to remove excess blood and scum. Rinse the chicken in cold water. (I don’t feel it is necessary to cut up the drumsticks. Just be aware of small bones or use boneless chicken.)

Put the chicken in a soup pot and bring the rest of the ingredients and prepared chicken in soup pot and bring to a boil then continue simmering for 40 mins.

Garnish with Gou Qi Zi aka Goji Berries and add ½ Tsp of salt at the end

Serve as warm meal. Once a day
