We've Got The Beets
One of my favorite pics on the internet are the ones that show which fruits and veggies are good for different parts of the body or systems. Did you know that plants actually look like the organs they serve? Think about it, walnuts look like a brain, celery like bones, carrots like eyes. February is Healthy Heart month, so which plant looks like the hears? THE BEET!
