 Food for Eyes

Do carrots give you night vision?

In short: Unfortunately not.

But there are some facts behind the fiction. We all know having a balanced diet is important to our overall health and wellbeing, but there are certain foods that are great for our eyes. And yes carrots are one of them.

Here are some lesser-known tips on how you can eat right for your sight:

1. Eat more fish.
Sushi anyone? Salmon, mackerel, tuna and sardines are packed with Omega 3, which is great for your eyes. So, incorporating more fish into your diet is definitely a good idea.

2. Go nuts!
Nuts and seeds are another great source of Omega 3, but they’re also a rich source of vitamin E, which can protect the eyes from age-related damage. So stock up on walnuts, Brazil nuts, cashews, chia seeds, flax seeds and hemp seeds. Life hack: Put some seeds in your smoothie.

3. Eat your greens.
Kale isn’t just a fad, it’s also a great source of Vitamin C and Lutein and Zeaxanthin (these help prevent or slow diseases caused by exposure to UV light). So beef up on your leafy greens. Or maybe it’s about time to try a hulk juice?

4. Stay hydrated.
We know it feels like everyone is telling you to drink more water, but proper hydration may reduce irritation from dry eyes. If you’re sick of only water why not try incorporating more herbal teas and raw juices?

Happy feasting!
