Food shapes affect your health
Did you know that many of the foods we eat resemble the body part or organ they help? Here are a few examples of how food shapes influence your health.
- Carrots: The carotene in carrots helps protect and improve your eye sight, and when you look at a carrot that has been sliced, it looks like the human eye.
- Tomatoes: Just like your heart, a tomato has four internal chambers and tomatoes provide your heart with a vital nutrient called lycopine.
- Walnuts: Shelled walnuts look like a brain and contain the brain boosting food, Omega-3’s.
- Beans: Kidney beans look exactly like their body counterpart, the kidney and contain nutrients that help heal and maintain kidney function.
- Vegetables: Stalky veggies like celery, bok choy, and rhubarb resemble the body’s skeletal bones. These veggies specifically help strengthen bones.
- Sweet Potatoes: Sweet Potatoes are shaped like the pancreas and contain nutrients that help balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
- Onions: Onions look like cells in your body and research has shown that onions can help eliminate waste materials from all of the body cells.
