We often think about eating healthy as a means to feeling and looking good – but did you know that just like other parts of our bodies, our eyes favour specific nutrients in order to function at their best?
Here are some meal ideas, jam-packed with nutrients your eyes will love:
- Soups – pumpkin, minestrone, carrot
- Stews & casseroles – load them up with veggies
- Stir fries – change it up with different veggies and sauces
