Therefore, if you eat Tangyuan, you must eat less oil when you have a meal or on the same day. Otherwise, too much fat and calories are inevitable. Once the color of Yuanxiao has changed, you can’t eat

Some people swallow the Lantern Festival as soon as they are scalded. This habit is more harmful.
10. Don’t forget to drink soup when eating yuanxiao.
after boiling, many nutrients in yuanxiao, such as trace elements and nutrients, are dissolved in the soup. So you can’t forget to drink soup when you eat yuanxiao. Soup can promote digestion and absorption,
