Eating Healthy | Asparagus Recipes

Just about every green, orange and yellow vegetable is great for the eyes, it’s just that some taste better than others and some when combined with other vegetables or nuts are especially good for the eyes.

Take asparagus, for instance. We think of it generally simply by a serving as a side vegetable, in spears, perhaps with butter or a sauce. It’s chock full of those A C and E vitamins that mean so much to eyesight, along with those antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin that have been recognized as marvelous fighters of both cataracts and aging macular degeneration. Asparagus is also low in calories, a plus for the weight conscious, and it is said they even cause weight loss, though one can’t be sure of that. They do help lower blood pressure, though, and definitely improve digestion.

Tried it sauteed, or with linguine, along with artichoke for extra eye appeal, or pine nuts and red peppers. You simply can’t go wrong!
