Eating fruits and vegetables is important for our health, we know this, however the shapes of fruits and vegetables often correspond to the parts of our bodies they’re particularly good at boosting. When you want to eat with a focused intent of helping a specific part of the body, consider the shape.
Avocados, eggplants, and pears are especially healthy foods for women and they all have a similar shape in common that mimics the cervix. These three real foods all contain antioxidants, support female reproductive health, and offer support in efforts of weight loss or management.
- Eggplants are low in calories, a good source of fiber, and contain antiviral and antimicrobial properties.
- While it takes two to have a pair, eating even just one pear comes with great benefits. These immune boosters are high in the flavonoid quercetin which is often used to aid in reducing inflammation.
- Full of healthy fats, avocados are heart healthy and could be a good food to assist in losing weight, particularly after pregnancy. They can also help to balance hormones and blood sugar levels.
Thanks to their fiber content, these plant based foods may reduce internal pain chemicals, which could ease or eliminate period cramps. Obviously the above fresh foods aren’t only great for women, but they’re beneficial for men too. These three cancer fighters truly are loaded with nutrients that fuel all of our bodies to run at their best!
