You are what you eat – eat what you are

So the saying often goes that you are what you eat but have you ever thought of flipping it?

To eat what you are – to eat foods that resemble parts of our body actually can be beneficial for those parts it resembles! For example, walnuts resemble the brain and research has shown they can be beneficial to brain health, kidney beans – bit of an obvious one – look like kidneys and can help heal and maintain them, grapes resemble the lungs and can reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema.

My brother recently introduced me to Erin via Facebook and I love her site – she also has an article on this listing more foods, you can check it out here: 10 foods that look like body parts.
