It’s funny how us humans make things complicated. The creator of this planet, God, the Universe, whatever higher power you believe in, has put in place a beautiful world that we should be able to thrive in.

Unfortunately, we don’t follow natures clues. Instead we go against mother nature… one thing I’ve learned in my lifetime is that mother nature always gets the last laugh.

I wrote this article, and recorded a video (watch below) for you to help you thrive. It’s a fun way to remember 5 foods that will make your health great.

Nature gives us clues. What do I mean by that? The sun goes up, and we’re suppose to get up. The sun goes down, and we’re supposed to go down (sleep). Instead we have manufactured a brand new daytime with the invention of electricity. Sure, it’s awesome that we did this, but it’s also costing us with our health. As long as you follow natures clues you will thrive, but when you go against it, sickness and disease happens.

I want to share 5 foods that are great for your health, and how nature gave us clues for them.

#1 CLUE: EGGS

The yolk from eggs looks like eyes, and it turns out they are beneficial to eye health. Egg yolk is a source of both lutein and zeaxanthin along with healthy fat and protein, and while the total amount of carotenoids is lower than in many vegetables, they’re in a highly absorbable, nearly ideal form.[1]

According to recent research,[2] adding a couple of eggs to your salad can also increase the carotenoid absorption from the whole meal as much as nine-fold.

Keep in mind that once you heat egg yolks (or spinach) the lutein and zeaxanthin become damaged, and will not perform as well in protecting your vision; so cook your eggs as little as possible, such as poached, soft-boiled, or raw.

#2 CLUE: WALNUTS

Walnuts are good for your brain, and they look like a little brain. Walnuts contain neuroprotective compounds, research shows walnut consumption may support brain health, including increasing inferential reasoning in young adults. [3]

#3 CLUE: CELERY

Celery is actually good for erections, and it looks like…well..

You may have read about how boosting nitric oxide in your blood can help you get and maintain better erections. One way to do this is to consume natural nitrates — something found in abundance in celery.

Nitric oxide is a molecule your body produces that signals smooth muscle cells to relax, increasing blood flow and reducing the production of plaque in the arteries.

#4 CLUE: AVOCADOS

Avocados are good for libido and they look like little testicles. Avocados are rich in heart-healthy fats, and anything that keeps your heart beating strong helps keep blood flowing to the right places.

#5 CLUE: TOMATOES

The skin of tomatoes kind of look like a sunburn, and lycopene (the antioxidant found in tomatoes) is good for your skin. In fact, many studies have shown that lycopene has beneficial effects for skin health.[4]
