Ideally, choose organic options as much as possible!
- 2 handfuls of spinach or kale (make sure it’s thoroughly washed beforehand) Dark green leafy vegetables like these are rich in Vitamin A (which helps protect the cornea - the front 'window of your eye) and Lutein and Zeaxanthin two carotenoids that help with cellular function at the back of the eye (the retina and macular)
- 2 heads of broccoli (raw) Eating broccoli raw is better for preserving the sulforaphane and in a smoothie, it's much easier! Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli have high amounts of sulforaphane which has antioxidant properties and has been linked to helping neurological decline
- 1 handful of frozen blueberries or acerola cherries if you can find them! Red berries are high in antioxidants which help protect the eye cells from free radical damage and promote healthy blood flow through the tiny arteries and veins at the back of the eye. They are also anti-inflammatory.
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric Tumeric is highly anti-inflammatory which can help with dry eye symptoms - dry eyes are especially linked with systemic inflammation.
- 1/2 cup of pre-made green tea or water Green tea has a flavonoid that helps protect the back of the eye.
- Optional: 1/4 banana for taste and creaminess
