This is what Dr. Chow’s typical lunch would be: A wholesome Chow-Kitchen-Sink salad and a small portion of white meat (such as turkey, chicken or fish.) In this case, today she had an arugula-romaine salad with cherry tomatoes and sliced strawberries (surprisingly good, sometimes she puts bananas!) and salmon.

Article from National Tai Chi Examiner by Violet Li Read full article and pictures here Qi is pronounced “chi” and means “life vital force” or “breath”. Gong means work. Qigong means the exercise people practice to cultivate Qi via proper breathing. Even though human beings breathe all the time, most people do not breathe accurately or know what Qi is.
