It is the most profound traditional food in Chinese history. Send each other zongzi to commemorate the day. In the Song Dynasty, the records of the dream in Tokyo recorded that "today, people make Zongzi on May 5, which is also the legacy of Miluo". It is said that the purpose of making zongzi in the Dragon Boat Festival is to commemorate the patriotic poet Qu Yuan.

There is also a legend that says, 'Ji, Qu Yuan's elder sister started to make zongzi' (according to the foreign garden). It is said that Qu Yuan's elder sister created zongzi.

Although the above is not the official history, it can be seen at least that the custom of eating zongzi on the Dragon Boat Festival is closely related to the commemoration of the patriotic poet Qu Yuan. It can be seen that people's feelings can not be insulted. Although it has gone through more than 2000 years of vicissitudes, it has become a household name to eat Zongzi to mourn Qu Yuan every year on May 5 of the lunar calendar. It has become a traditional folk custom since the beginning of the year.

Since the southern and Northern Dynasties, there have been zongzi among the people, which originated from the saying that people worshiped Qu Yuan.

Wu Jun (467-520) of Liang Dynasty in the Southern Dynasty wrote in the story of continuation of Qi Dynasty: "the Chu people mourned the death of Qu Yuan who threw himself into Miluo on May 5 in the lunar calendar. On this day, rice is stored in bamboo tubes and sacrificed in water. During the construction of Wuzhong in the Han Dynasty, when Changsha returned to Europe, he suddenly met a man, who called himself Sanlu doctor, and said, & lsquo; you should see the sacrifice, which is very good. But it is often left behind, stolen by the bitter dragon. Today, if there is any benefit, you can plug the leaves of neem trees on them and tie them with colorful silk. These two things are feared by Jiaolong. &According to his words. People make zongzi and bring five colored silk and neem leaves, all of which are Miluo's legacy. '

Another saying is that people are afraid that Qu Yuan's body will be eaten by fish in the river, so they wrap up zongzi and feed the fish in the river.

The saying that zongzi is related to Qu Yuan is widely praised for its romanticism. Zongzi often appears in the poems and Fu of literati.

The amount of calories per 100 grams of jujube accounts for 14% of the total calories that the Chinese Nutrition Society recommends for the average adult to keep healthy every day. The heat of glutinous rice is 343 calories, so the heat of jujube zongzi = 321 calories + 343 calories = 654 calories.

The nutrition of zongzi is mainly based on heat, followed by protein, fat and carbon water combined dietary fiber. For the nutrition needed by 20-year-old men and women in one day, most of zongzi's heat is high, high fiber is generally insufficient, and less is appropriate. Glutinous rice in zongzi has a high viscosity and is difficult to digest. It is easy for people with poor digestion to have a stuffy stomach, and some of them are even "sluggish" when eating. Because of its high sugar content, it is easy to improve the blood sugar content in human body, so people with diabetes should not eat more. Old people and children should not eat more, because zongzi is easy to cause diarrhea or constipation. Zongzi is a kind of high calorie and hard to digest food. The heat of eating one zongzi is much higher than that of a bowl of rice. Therefore, the quantity of zongzi should be controlled when eating.

Eating zongzi in the morning will last longer in the stomach, stimulating the secretion of gastric acid, which may cause chronic gastric ulcer. In addition, before going to bed, zongzi must not be used as a night snack, which is prone to indigestion, thus affecting sleep.
