Nature's Pharmacy

There are lots of nutritious foods for us to eat. And some of the fruits and vegetables even look like the body parts that they are good for!!

Walnuts look just like little brains, they even have wrinkles and a hard shell to protect them!
Walnuts help our brains work properly.

Tomatoes and hearts are both red and both have 4 chambers, or sections. Tomatoes have lycopene in them, which is good for our hearts and blood.

Kidney beans and kidneys look almost exactly the same. The beans help the organs filter our blood.

Have you ever heard that carrots are good for your eyes? Well it's true! They look just like them too :)

Celery, Bok Choy and Rhubarb look just like our bones. They make sure your body has enough sodium so that it doesn't have to take any from your bones, which would make them weaker. What happens if you have weak bones?

So make sure you get enough fruits and vegetables. It's not just these ones that are good for your body. All fruits and vegetables are. If it's fresh or it came out of the ground, it's good for you.
I got most of this information from an email, so if you notice wrong information or if I missed something, please let me know!
