Foods resemble Body Parts
Every child has heard the healthy-eating mantra “You are what you eat.” But there may be a closer resemblance between good-for-you grub and your body than you thought. We found 10 foods that mirror the body parts they provide nutrients for—for example, brain-boosting walnuts actually look like a brain. Coincidence? Maybe. Though these healthy foods are beneficial to the whole body, the list below is a fun reminder of what to eat to target specific areas.
Here are 12 foods that resemble the body parts they provide nutrients for. For example, the inside of a bright-red tomato resembles the interior of the human heart. Though these healthy foods are beneficial to the whole body, the list below is a fun reminder of what to eat to target specific areas. Remember, these foods are best and most effective when eaten raw.
A sliced carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris, and radiating lines look just like the human eye. Science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to the eyes and help with it’s basic functions.
A tomato, like the human heart, has four chambers and is red. Research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes often hang in a cluster in the shape of the heart. Each individual grape looks like a blood cell and research today shows grapes are beneficial to your heart and blood.
A Walnut looks like a little brain as it resembles the left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums, and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than 3 dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans: Kidneys
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery looks just like bones and specifically targets bone strength. Bones and celery are both comprised of 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet the body will pulls it from you bones, thus making them weaker. Celery will help replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocado: Female reproductive system
Avocados target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances her hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and can prevent cervical cancers. Strangely enough, it takes exactly 9 months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs: Male reproductive system
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and can assist in overcoming male sterility.
Sweet Potatoes: Pancreas
Sweet Potatoes resemble the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.
Oranges , grapefruits, and other citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female, and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions resemble the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body’s cells, and even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
