autumn 2010

I remember seeing a piece on television years ago where certain whole foods were described as being beneficial to parts of your anatomy based on what they looked like. "Teleological Nutritional Targeting" is how the scientists label it according to google.

While I can't remember what each food represented, I do remember a couple.

For example; we all know that carrots help us see in the dark, however if you look at the cross-section of a carrot have you noticed how it resembles the pupil, the iris and radiating lines of the human eye?

Looking at the walnut, it became even more clear and amazing to me as it really looks like a mini brain encased in a hard shell and comes complete with left and right hemispheres, curves and folds that resemble the neocortex. Indeed walnuts are proven to be an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids of which studies have shown to help protect against neurological diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer’s disease.

So if you feel in need of some brain food, or you just love to eat walnuts like I do, how about cooking up some of these?!
