Order Up Some Eggs


Posted by Julie M.

What’s the healthiest food to eat for breakfast? Well, no one can say for sure, and a lot of people are on the whole grain, fruit, and yogurt program. But if you want to boost your eyesight, eat extra lutein—a carotenoid—have a spinach omelet. Both spinach and lutein-enriched eggs, a new kind of specialty eggs like omega-3-enriched eggs, have extra lutein. In the long run that can reduce your chances of macular degeneration, an eye disease that can happen as you get older. And some more good news if you like your omelets with cheese; a little fat helps your body absorb lutein, so throw some of that in as well. Check for eggs with added lutein at your health food store.
