This post is inspired from a lesson at church. Did you know that a lot of foods are shaped like the body part they are good for? How crazy is that?! Let me give you some examples:
It is shaped like a brain in every way! It has a line that runs down the middle and has the bumps and curves like you would imagine a brain to appear. What is it good for? Among many benefits they are really good for brain function, mainly improving cognitive function.
When cut the tomato resembles the heart perfectly with four chambers,the color red, and the shape. Tomatoes are an excellent source of niacin, potassium, vitamin B6, and folate. These nutrients help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Sweet potatoes are shaped like a pancreas and therefore help the pancreas by releasing sugars into the bloodstream gradually. This helps eliminate stress on the organs and regulating blood-sugar levels.
When sliced, carrots look just like the eye. Under a microscope you would be able to see tiny little veins branching out from the center. Carrots are rich in beta carotene which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A as we all know is great for maintaining the health of the cells within the corneas.
My personal favorite. You guessed it! These are great for the melons, our melons that is! Citrus fruits and melons are rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C helps in preventing breast cancer. Isn't that amazing?!
The list goes on and on. I hope this helps you appreciate your food more and the almighty who made it! Isn't it fascinating?!
