Recipe for Revival




Jan. 7 - They say that eating a bowl of rice porridge laden with these seven herbs on the seventh day of the first month will bring you good health throughout the year. The Wikipedia entry for Nanakusa-no-sekku (the "Festival of Seven Herbs")states that "since there is little green at... [this] time of the year, the young green herbs bring color to the table and eating them suits the spirit of the New Year." For those who have feasted and imbibed perhaps more than they should have over the New Year's holiday, the simple dish is the exact medicine they need to revive the body and spirit.
