Eating Healthy for Healthy Eyes—Even on Thanksgiving

What we eat plays an important role in keeping our eyes healthy. Studies have revealed that getting foods rich in nutrients like Omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc and vitamins C and E may help prevent age-related vision problems like cataracts. With one of the biggest food holidays approaching, be sure to work in these healthy options into your meal plan:

  • Green, leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and collards. Before you dive into the turkey, start with a plate of greens. It’s good for you and will help fill you up, so you eat less.
  • Eggs, nuts, beans and other non-meat protein sources
  • Oranges and other citrus fruits. Mix these into a fruit punch or have in bowls available for light snacking throughout the day.
