4, chestnuts and beef
Fixing is of great importance to dishes like steak. According to TCM, beef is sweet and warm in nature, nourishing spleen, stomach and Qi. However, chestnuts are not a good choice for steak fixing because when cooked together the Vitamin C in chestnuts and trace elements in beef have chemical reaction that may cause indigestible problem.

5, chicken and mustard
Do NOT add mustard on your chicken sandwiches because TCM believes the two foods that are warm and hot in nature respectively would better not take in at the same time; otherwise, too much heat makes the body vulnerable to disease like cold and flu.
