Just when you didn’t think there wasn’t a day for it- there is! On National Avocado day, it’s time to go nuts with the chips and guacamole. Setting aside the obvious delicious flavor, guacamole actually provides nutrients that promote good eye health!

Super Food

Avocados have heart-healthy fats and Omega 3 fatty acids. They also prevent and repair damage due to its source of Vitamins C, E and K.

Did you know that avocados have high oleic acid content. This moisturizing fatty acid helps keep skin soft and hydrated but also supports regeneration of damaged skin cells reducing redness and irritation. Cook with avocado oil if you have this type of issue.

National Avocado Day & Your Vision

First, the reason avocados are good for your eyes is lutein. According to WebMD, lutein is, “a natural antioxidant that helps maintain eye health as you age.”

Secondly, the American Optometric Associate claims that “lutein is a carotenoid that filters harmful blue light—this helps to maintain healthy cells within your eye.” Thirdly, lutein can help prevent age-related macular degeneration.

Finally, used avocados in some of your dishes like salads, salsa, soup, and sandwiches. The best part about making food is the idea of being creative with it.
