Shopping basket: foods for energy

Foods for energy: transforming digestion into energy. In this list, some foods act directly on the stomach to make it more efficient. Others strengthen the constitution.

Aromatics, such as herbs and some fish (smelly) "awaken" the digestion. Warmers, such as spices "kick start" the organism. There are no extremes of hot or cold foods which are not helpful with this condition.
Corn, oats, rice, barley, wheat germ breads - energize the stomach
Sweet potato, pumpkin, squash and carrots - make digestive system stronger
Cherries, figs, dates, grapes - body tonics
