Keep your eyes beautiful with a diet rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
There is resounding evidence that eating your greens protects your macular from age related degeneration, thus helping to preserve your central vision- so precious as this enables you to recognise the faces of your loved ones, read that pile of books or enable you to keep driving.
Kale, spinach, broccoli, brussel sprouts and cos lettuce all contain the magic lutein and zeaxanthin which mop up those free radicals which can damage the precious retina at the back of your eyes.
Furthermore, omega 3 fatty acids contained in oily fish such as salmon, trout, sardines or tuna or for vegetarian options; chia and flaxseeds, are anti-inflammatory power houses which help with conditions such as dry eye, macular degeneration and glaucoma.
Vitamins C, E, selenium and zinc should also be incorporated so remember to include citrus, berries, wholegrains, nuts and legumes in your diet.
Make these changes and your plate won't just look and taste good but your eyes will be able to see clearly as well!
