WHAT DOES THE SHAPE OF OUR FOOD TELL US?

Ok, so think about this…
  • TOMATO  :: Like our heart it has 4 chambers and is the color red.  It also contains lycopene which nourishes the heart and blood.
  • KIDNEY BEANs ::    are shaped like our kidneys.  They heal and maintain kidney function.
  • ONIONS ::   The appearance resembles cells in the body.  They clean out waste material from all cells, i.e. detoxification.
 
  • SWEET POTATOES ::   They look like the pancreas.   They release sugars gradually into the bloodstream, which is easy on the organ, and helps regulate blood sugar levels.  They are high in antioxidants (beta-carotene) that protects all tissue in the body- including the pancreas- from cancer and aging.

 

  • CELERY.  RHUBARB.  BOK-CHOY::   These look like bones.  They specifically target bone strength.  Bones are thought to be 23% sodium… these foods contain 23% sodium!  If you become sodium deficient, your body will pull sodium from the bones!

 

 
  • CARROTS ::    sliced they look like our eye.  Carrots enhance blood flow to the eyes. The beta-carotene in carrots reduce the risk of developing cataracts & protects against macular degeneration
  • WALNUTS ::    look like the brain.  Scientists claim they help development of over 3 dozen neurotransmitters in the brain… this aids in brain function.  They help ward off dementia and break down plaque associated with Alzheimer’s

 

  • GRAPES ::     look like the tiny air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs where oxygen is passed into the blood.  Grapes are found to reduce the risk of lung cancer & emphysema.  The chemical – proanthocyanidin – in grapes is thought to reduce severity of allergy induces asthma
 
  • GINGER ::   looks like our stomach.  Helps digest food; calms the stomach; cures nausea and motion sickness.  It also slows down the growth rate of bowel tumors
 
Involved in reproductive health:
  • AVOCADO ::     looks like the uterus, improves health & function of the uterus.  Helps balance hormones and is thought to prevent cervical cancer.  FACT:  It takes avocados 9 months to grow into maturity.  Sound familiar?
  • FIGS ::   are  full of seeds and hang in twos. They resemble testicles – studies have shown that figs increase the motility of sperm & increase sperm count
 
I think this is kinda cool to think about. 
 I am not saying that these are the ONLY benefits these foods provide. 

If anything, I hope it opens our minds to the fact we have the power to grow, strengthen and promote healing in our body by selecting real foods. 

So feed your body, not your cravings!
