In March 2009 I came across some old magazines and while flicking through them I came across this one, it was some of the best and easily to connect with nutritional advice I had heard despite studying Food Science and Nutrition for many years.
Gods' Garden - Free Spirit Magazine Sept 07
It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish... all before making a human. He made and provided what we’d need before we were born and these vegetables and fruits are best & more powerful when eaten raw. God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!
~ A sliced 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 and function of the eyes.
~ A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
~ Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
~ A Walnut looks like a little brain, with 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 more than three dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
~ Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
~ Celery, Bok Choy and Rhubarb look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the
bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
~ Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female. They look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And 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.
~ Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually
balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
~ Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.
~ Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just
like the mammary glands of the female and actually
assist the health of the breasts and the movement of
lymph in and out of the breasts.
~ Onions look like the body’s cells, and research
shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the
body cells. They even produce tears which wash the
epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion,
Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and
dangerous free radicals from
So, get into the habit of eating from
God’s Garden and you’ll find your body retains
good health and wellbeing at all times.
Very often what we are craving on a deeper level is spiritual connection and nourishing ourselves spiritually is as important as nourishing ourselves physically this is one way yo connect the two. Another of my favourite practices is to use the following prayer/intention.
"Dear God/Goddess/Angels/Higher Self.(use what works for you) guide me while I shop, eat and drink to choose foods that nourish and support me to be the healthiest I can be"
