Here are three delicious and nutritious Thanksgiving foods you should indulge in because they are all good for your eye-health:
- 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.
- Cranberries are high in antioxidants and vitamin C and have been linked to improving urinary health.
- 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.
