Here’s a game for you.
Quick.Ai?? Take a look at that carrot.Ai?? What does it look like?Ai?? Resemble an eye?Ai?? According to Dr. Amy Chow, O.D, an eye doctor at Cupertino Family Eye Care Center, carrots can indeed be beneficial to your eyesight.Ai?? Beta carotene, which is turned into vitamin A by the liver, is absorbed by retinal cells in the eyes so you can see.Ai?? ai???There are some ways to prevent decreasing vision,ai??? says Dr. Chow.Ai?? Granted, carrots won’t allow you to see in the dark as was widely spread during World War II, claiming that vegetables helped British pilots see Nazi bombers attacking at night, but getting enough vitamin A is never a bad thing for both your eyes and body.

Quick.Ai?? Take a look at those beets.Ai?? What comes to mind?Ai?? This one may be a tad harder, but notice that dark red juice.Ai?? Looks almost like blood, doesn’t it?Ai?? Yes, beets are good for your blood.Ai?? Not only are they high in iron, which regenerates and reactivates the red blood cells and supplies fresh oxygen to the body, but they can even lower your blood pressure.Ai?? Nitrates, natural chemicals in the beets, may be the magic ingredient, scientists say.Ai?? Of course, it is a little difficult to just pick one up and eat it like an apple, so you may want to try juicing it, or even shredding it up and putting it on top of a salad (tastes better than you think!).
Now quick.Ai?? Take a look at that walnut.Ai?? If you can’t figure this one out, we give up!Ai?? Walnuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are widely known to support the development of a healthy brain, and also prevent it from deteriorating as you age.Ai?? Omega 3 fatty acids can help your body maintain good health in general (also contained in salmon, flax seed oil, and eggs).Ai?? Just a handful of walnuts a day can provide you with your daily requirement of omega 3 fatty acids.
Can you think of anything else that looks like a brain?Ai?? Cauliflower, that white veggie you always seem to ignore at the grocery store, contains choline, a B-vitamin-like nutrient that is absorbed through the intestines and converted to citicoline in the brain.Ai?? Citicoline is known to increase energy and efficiency in the frontal lobe, which is the section of the brain responsible for reasoning, decision-making, and working memory.Ai?? So, next time you may want to take notice of that white veggie and pick one up.
Yes, some ironic visual trends for you (and there are plenty more).Ai?? For those who believe in a Master Designer, though, perhaps they’re not so ironic after all.
