I came across this on the Internet while browsing around and thought it was really cool. and funny at the same time........Fun food facts
Here is just a short list of examples of Whole Food Signatures.
A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye...and science shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Eggplant, Avocado's and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? .... 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 are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the motility of male sperm and increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.
Grapefruits, Oranges , 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 look like body cells. Today's research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes.

Lisa Stephenson (my almost sister-in-law) gave me a subscription for the Cooking for Two Magazine for Christmas. I got my first magazine this week and it's pretty good. So, I decided that I would post a new recipe up on my blog every week. I think I'll try and make them first so I can say if they're good or not, but I don't think I will like some things other people will like so I'll post some I haven't tried yet but look good. So I will do that and then you won't get bored with trying to find something new on my blog ;) And maybe I'll put the names of some others on there so if they sound good you can tell me and I'll post them. Anyway, I just thought it would be nice so if you want new recipes you can go look, but if not, pleh on you :)
Oh, and I can put the nutrition facts up with it if you want
4 Chicken breast, (don't defrost all the way it makes it easier to cut) 1/2 cube butter, cook chicken in pan till bottom of pan gets "Glazzy" as she called it, take chicken out and add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice fresh or "real lemon juice,"
As for the fry rice you buy you like only 5 dalla. get the long grain real rice, no min. rice
The other half of butter, Half a chopped up onion (obviously I didn't use this) cook till brown, Add 2 chicken broth, boil, cover turn to med/low cook for 20 min.
if you do simultaneously you should be done at the same time.
this is for 4 people so + or - according to needs.
I just realized that I forgot to record my steps for the first few days of the year! Just a reminder to keep your steps counted to see if we can all get in better shape as a family this year! May the force be with you as the holiday chocolate comes off you!
Also, what are your other New Years' resolutions? I'm writing mine but I'll post them once I get them done.
