Who is who in the world of food?
You’ll know that many foods are highly beneficial for your health, but did you know that some foods work particular wonders with specific organs? Take this quiz to match them up by deciding which foods look like the body parts they’re good for. Ready?
Walnut – Brain. They’re the spitting image of each other, so it’s no wonder our brain works better after a dose of walnuts. In addition to their famed antidepressant properties, walnuts can also halt the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, improve memory and boost learning. All thanks to their omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which help energise the central nervous system.
Tomato – Heart. If you chop a tomato in half, you’ll soon see its resemblance to a heart. Thanks to their high levels of lycopene, tomatoes help keep cholesterol at bay. And if you mix in a spoonful of extra-virgin olive oil, you’ll boost lycopene absorption no end. What more could you ask for?
Ginger – Stomach. Say goodbye to nausea, vomiting, poor digestion or other gastric disorders: ginger is here to the rescue!
Carrot – Eye. If you slice up a carrot crosswise, you’ll see that each round looks like the iris of an eye. Packed with β-carotenes, carrots help reduce the risk of macular degeneration.
