DAY 186 - Delicious Way to Prevent Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Guaranteed delicious; prevention can’t always be delivered with one recipe, nor guaranteed.

Zeaxanthin is the primary xanthophyll carotenoid in the central, macular portion of retina of the eye. Several observational studies have connected high dietary intake of foods providing zeaxanthin, with lower incidence of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Zeaxanthin is found in many plant foods, including collard greens.

So, please, let’s start with a 6 foot-tall tree collard.

Harvest lots of leaves.

Chop into thin strips.

Lightly stir-fry in olive or coconut oil, with a splash of gluten-free tamari.

Serve on a bed of freshly steamed brown rice, with just a squeeze of lemon.

Now, don’t tell me you can’t see better!

Health Note: let’s face it, we all know that our lives and health are improved when we eat lots of fresh, organic vegetables; especially greens.
