The Win-Win Holiday
Who doesn’t love Thanksgiving – family, friends, and food! And the best part is, we all have a pass on this one day out of the year where our eyes are allowed to be bigger than our stomachs. Luckily, many of the dishes served on this day have eye health benefits too! Here’s the dish…
Turkey contains zinc, which can help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration. Zinc also fights against the onset of cataracts.
Cranberry Sauce is a superfood that contains a high dose of Vitamin C and other antioxidants, which remove free radicals from your eyes and keep your vision strong.
Carrots are rich in beta carotene, which the body converts to a form of vitamin A called “retinal,” which helps in maintaining good eye health.
Pumpkin Pie also contains beta-carotene, which is great for vision, especially in low-light conditions.
Sweet Potatoes have a high amount of beta-carotene, which helps promote good overall eye health.
Cauliflower is packed with vitamin C and omega-3s, which are great for visual development.
Brussels Sprouts contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which can help reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.
