Eat and be Merry! Your Eyes Will Thank You

Here are three delicious and nutritious Thanksgiving foods you should indulge in because they are all good for your eye-health:

  1. A holiday favorite, cinnamon is great against free-radicals which are the molecules responsible for aging and tissue damage. So sprinkle lots of it in your pies, baked goods and beverages.
  2. Cranberries are high in antioxidants and vitamin C and have been linked to improving urinary health.
  3. And our personal favorite -Pumpkin and yams! They are both very good for your eyes since they are rich in vitamin A (beta-carotene) and photo-chemicals which have protective or disease preventive properties.
