September is Healthy Aging Month! There are a lot of steps you can take to help keep your eyes and body healthy throughout your life. One easy and delicious way is to eat healthy!
Did you know tuna, salmon or mackerel, all have the ability to improve overall eye health. They are rich in omega 3 fatty acids which can protect against cataracts, dry eye syndrome and even macular degeneration. This omega 3 fatty acid is a healthy fat that results in stronger and healthier eyes and contributes to visual development and keeping the retina healthy.
Also, leafy greens including spinach, kale, collard greens, and broccoli, are great for keeping your eyes healthy and preventing eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration.
Here is a great recipe that include all of those delicious nutrients. Ingredients can be altered to fit your taste buds!
Personally we like to cover the salmon in sesame seeds and then pan sear it for about 1-2 minutes on each side or to your preference of temperature.
For the salad we use a mix of greens with spinach and top with avocado, cucumber, and carrot. Sometimes we toss in some sliced mangos or pineapple. Any fruit or vegetable would do!
For the dressing we usually use a store bought dressing of our choice to make the meal super quick and easy.
Add some pickled ginger or wasabi if you would like too!
The recipe is so versatile, delicious, and healthy!
ENJOY AND HAPPY HEALTHY AGING!
