Eyefoods Tips

Leafy Green Vegetables

Leafy green vegetables are extremely high in lutein and zeaxanthin.  They also contain beta-carotene, vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc and fiber.  This balance of eye nutrients makes them a staple in an Eyefoods diet.  
Lutein and zeaxanthin are fat soluble, therefore they need fat to be transported in the body.  

Eat leafy greens daily.

Enjoy them both cooked and raw.

Eat a variety of leafy greens ensuring to include kale at least once a week.

Add a small amount of healthy oil to your leafy greens.
