Snow in October, and no killing frost has got to be a record. I didn’t wait for Jack to blacken my vegetable garden. I pulled up the pepper plants, the tomato vines and my pathetic Brussels sprouts. Everyone I’ve talked to who grew sprouts had the same problem I did - sprouts no bigger than peas.
The one vegetable I left in the garden was the carrots. If you mulch the carrot row heavily you can continue harvesting them well into December. Wouldn’t it be nice if carrots made your hair curl and your eyes capable of seeing in the dark? Unfortunately the vitamin A purported to bring about these delightful attributes is apparently not released unless carrots are cooked or juiced. I’m a rabbit food freak and eat few cooked carrots, and No juice.
Last week a friend sent me an article claiming a sliced carrot looks like the human eye. “The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... And science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to the function of the eyes.”
Since there was no one listed as the author of the article, I went on the Internet to see how authentic it might be. When I googled “Food-Body Parts” I was directed to a site called “Truth or Fiction.” The site said the article was “a very creative piece, but is very weak on substantiation. We have not found any strong documentation correlating foods with the parts of the body that they resemble.”
OK, maybe it’s just a joke, but I found it really interesting and thought you might too, so here it is.
It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish... All before making a human. He made and provided what we'd need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw.
God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!
God's Pharmacy! Amazing!

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... And YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and 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 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 on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (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 many 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, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocados, Eggplant 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 one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (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 mobility 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.
, 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. Oranges
Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They 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.
Sorry, I don't have any photos of vegetable body parts. True or False, you’ve got to admit the anatomy lesson was fun.
