If you’re thinking about starting a diet this month, you’re off to a good start. May is considered National Salad Month. Green vegetables like spinach, contain powerful antioxidants that protect your retina.

Leafy greens also contain vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and fiber. Kale is the best leafy green veggie you can go with.

Add Carrots During National Salad Month

Carrots are high in beta carotene and vitamin A. This vitamin plays an important role in vision by helping the surface of the eye and skin be an effective barrier to bacteria and viruses. Thus, reducing the risk of eye infections, respiratory problems and other diseases.

Use Pecans for Added Fats

Pecans are full of “healthy monounsaturated fats and very few saturated.” According to, pecans contain, “vitamin E, which has antioxidant effects and may boost immune activity.”

If you are looking for a healthy snack that will improve vision health and promote healthy eyes this is good nutritional choice.
