Some of the most important nutrients come from orange vegetables as they are high in beta-carotene, vitamin E, zinc, fibre, vitamin C, lutein and zeaxanthin. These foods may protect against the development and progression of cataracts and macular degeneration. It is recommended to eat at least one orange vegetable daily. Some great options are sweet potatoe, butternut squash, orange peppers, and carrots. Here is a recipe that I’ve created that is rich in eye nutrients and is great during the fall and winter months."
