London, Food and Travel with an Alternative Twist!

Can what you Eat Help your Eye Sight? *

 Since having my eyes lasered back in January 2016, I’ve been really careful with my eyes. I wear sunglasses as soon as there is the slightest glimmer of sunlight, I use the night shift setting on my phone from 9pm, and I try to limit my computer use outside of work but I had no idea that eating certain foods can help prevent damage to your eyes!

So the blue light that our digital goods, the sun and artificial light emits causes the Macula within your eye to vibrate a lot more that red light causes it to. The Macula has a yellow pigment that helps to combat these blue lights, so the harder it has to work, the more damage you’re doing towards it.

There are ways to help prevent damage to your Macula from happening and one of those is by making sure you have plenty of lutein and zeaxanthin in your system. The best way to do that is from what you eat!

Kale is the number one food for this when cooked from raw. My mum recently cooked us some kale crisps with dinner that were made from raw kale to start with so I will be bringing those into my life a lot more as they were so tasty. Raw cress is also high in lutein and zeaxanthin, as is raw and cooked from raw spinach.  I use raw spinach as a bed for a lot of my salads with lettuce and often pop it into pasta to up my veggie intake. Little did I know those tiny habits can make such a big difference to your eye’s health!
