  • Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function—and they look exactly like human kidneys
  • 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 brain function
  • The cross section of a 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 eyes and aid in the general function of the eyes
  • Celery looks just like bones. Celery specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23 percent sodium and these foods are 23 percent sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. Foods like celery replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
  • Tomato has four chambers just like the human heart. They are red in color like the blood. All the research shows that tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food
  • Avocadoes target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female—they look just like these organs. Avocadoes help women balance hormones, shed unwanted birth weight, and deter cervical cancers. It takes exactly nine months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit
  • 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
  • Slice a Mushroom in half and it resembles a human ear. Mushrooms have been found to improve hearing, as mushrooms are one of the few foods that contain vitamin D. This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain
  • Our lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli. These structures, which resemble bunches of Grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream. A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema. Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy
  • Ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the stomach. So its interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding digestion. The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness
  • Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
  • Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries
  • Grapefruit, Orange and other citrus fruits resemble the mammary glands of the female and help with the movement of the lymph in and out of the breasts

What a rare and exciting treat to find an Asian market in my area.
What incredible fun to shop there with my son
and to see the same joy in his eyes
that I feel when I walk in to experience
another culture.
It's like finding a secret treasure cove
of undiscovered land and jewels   :)
I have literally left clothes behind when I travel
just to bring back some new and exciting foods
I found along the way on my trip.
When I find it right in my own backyard
with similar prices
my heart goes pitter patter joy joy !
So I picked many items I was unfamiliar with
and asked the owner as I checked out all about them.
The store was empty so I was gifted with his full attention.
He was very happy to share and teach
as I was so happy to be silent and learn.
In this picture is;
Lotus Roots in Brine
GE Xian Weng Tea
Dried Squid
Tapioca Strips
Water Mellon Seeds for Snack
Green Tea Pumpkin Seeds
Agar Agar
Several Sauces.
I highly recommend buying dried
mushrooms, seaweeds, kelp, fungus.
When visiting an Asian market.
Reconstitute them by soaking  (especially the fungus)
and many need to be cooked.
My son was most excited by the quail eggs.
He may get very excited when I tell him
I am considering raising 2-3 quails for eggs :)
