What to eat for better eyesight – foods you can’t go without!

As you get older, your vision gets affected, it’s a known fact which we cannot reverse. The body gets old, so does the eyes. What can we do in this case? Eat healthy in order to get all the vitamins the body needs. Try and watch out for your health, some say it’s our most prized possession.

Fish

fish food

When is the last time you ate fish? Choose salmon, tuna, sardines and mackerel, all rich in healthy omega 3 fatty acids, excellent for the dry eye.

Fresh vegetables:

Salad, kale, and spinach they’re all full of lutein and zeacanthin, pigments that help the eye and prevents cataract. Of course, you can’t go wrong with broccoli or green peas.

Eggs:

This may come as a surprise, and you’ll hear me say this in most of my articles. Eggs are good for you! They provide lutein and vitamin A which protects the eye from going dry and you from going blind.

Whole grainswhole grains

Only whole! A diet in low glycemic foods, reduces the risk of macular degeneration.

Citrus and berries:berries

Oranges, grapefruits, lemons and cranberries, they’re all are rich in vitamin C, and reduces the risk of cataract. I feel that sometime real vitamin C from fruits is underrated. Consume it more, you will get a lot of benefits!

Nuts:nuts

Choose pistachio, nuts and almonds, rich in omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E.

Vegetables and colored fruits:fruits

Carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, pepper, pumpkin and melon are excellent for vitamin A and C.

Beef:beef cut

Used in moderate amounts, stimulates your eye health, due to the zinc obtained. This, of course, if you eat meat 🙂
