Interesting Food Information!

Thought you'd all be interested in this.You are what you eat, so eat well. A stupendous insight of civilizations past has now been confirmed by today's investigative, nutritional sciences. They have shown that what was once called 'The Doctrine of Signatures' was astoundingly correct. It now contends that every whole food has a pattern that resembles a body organ or physiological function and that this pattern acts as a signal or sign as to the benefit the food provides the eater. Here is just a short list of examples of Whole Food Signatures.

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye...and YES science now shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys..

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Eggplant, Avocadoes and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? .... It takes exactly 9 months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the motility of male sperm and increase the number of sperms as well to overcome male sterility, and guess what they resemble?

Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries

Grapefruits, Oranges, and other citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like body cells. Today's research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes

Nasi Goreng Cina ( Chinese Fried Rice )

Nasi goreng or fried rice is common food in Malaysia.
Literally nasi means rice and goreng means fried. The dish is often accompanied by additional items such as a fried egg, fried chicken, satay, vegetables or keropok (fried crackers / chips made of shrimp or vegetables). In many restaurants, when accompanied by a fried egg, it is sometimes called the nasi goreng special.
Nasi goreng can be eaten at any time of day, and Malaysians eat nasi goreng for breakfast, often using leftovers from the previous day's dinner. The rice used to make nasi goreng should be cooked ahead of time and left to cool down (so it is not soggy), which is one reason to use rice cooked from the day before. Nasi goreng is a complete meal in itself, but sometimes it is also part of a banquet.
Today, i had nasi goreng cina as my breakfast at our 3rd floor canteen. Yeap, the same boring place.

Looks good huh! Let's look closer.

It's colorful, rich and the taste...? Superb!!
The best part in this food....?

The SAMBAL. The chili paste. For Indians, no chili no food!
The cost??? RM 2.50. Worth for money rite?

I recommend this food! Its good, cheap and taste good!
PS: I had to beg to this guy for this pose!

Moral of the story: Don't eat chicken!

Al-Azman Shah ( MAMAK SHOP )

You like to hang around at mamak stall?
This time i visited a mamak stall near lebuh ampang,
a shop called Al-Azman Shah, facing the main road, Jalan Tun Perak.

I'm not joking, this is serious. The workers are able to speak Tamil,
but when i speak in Tamil, they reply in malay.
I can't get it. what's wrong with this people?
Anyway, lets look at environment and customer service.
I have decided not to paste the photos of environment. It might stop you
to visit this shop. The customer service? I am ordering to one person and he is ordering to another person. yeuuk! Regret!
Let's look at food!

Nothing much i ordered, as usual, rice, chicken curry, vege, fried chicken and lime ice drink.
Impressive? emm.. the story continues...

Look at the food. You feel want to eat it?

So called vege, cabbage, the only vege they selling.

Fried Chicken? Too salty. The lime drink? i saw the lime in cup but i think i drank sky juice.
Guess how much that food cost? RM6.00!!! Disappointed!
I don't mind paying more if the food is good.
My personal points on this shop...
