You’ll Remember What These Foods are Good for After Seeing These Pictures

Sometimes it’s hard to remember what to eat to benefit the various parts of your body. Fortunately, some foods look so much like the body parts they help that it’ll be hard for you to forget. Check out these five foods that look remarkably like the body part they help improve:

Celery and bones

    Long lean stalks of celery look very much like bones, as depicted in this image. Celery contains sodium which helps to increase bone strength. Bones contain 23% of sodium. Eating lots of celery can help replace the skeletal needs of the body.

    Carrots and eyes

      A sliced carrot closely resembles the human eye. The orange color of the carrot is derived from the plant chemical beta-carotene, which helps reduce the risk of developing cataracts and is also known to prevent macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is common among older people and is the leading cause of vision loss among individuals 65 years and over.

        Red wine is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, as well as resveratrol and quite frankly really looks like blood. Red wine also contains a blood-thinning compound which reduces blood clots.

            It is amazing how closely the walnut resembles the human brain, right down to the folds, wrinkles, and shape. Walnuts contain a high amount of omega-3 fatty acids which support healthy brain function. These nuts are also rich in Vitamin E, an antioxidant known to lower the risk of Alzheimer’s.

            8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

            8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

            We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

            On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

            Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

            1. Smart Door Locks

            A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

            2. Smart Kitchen Tools

            Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

            3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

            If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.
