Easter Eggs are Egg-cellent for Your Eyes.

Good News…there is no reason to eliminate eggs from your Easter celebrations!  In fact, the incredible, edible egg is chock full of eye friendly antioxidants and eggs yolks are high in lutein, a type of carotenoid that helps fight macular degeneration, the leading cause of legal blindness.  According to a 2009 study, older adults who consumed four egg yolks a day for five weeks had improved macular health.  And here’s a little side note:  ECT’s Dr. Ting-Fang Suarez usually has a boiled egg in her pocket.  She says they’re a filling snack and they’re good for eyes…she should know because she specializes in retina diseases.

There are so many great ways to enjoy eggs that they never get boring. Whether your favorite egg dish is an Easter Egg,  omelette or egg salad sandwich, it’s easy to get all the nutrition they contain while reaping their health benefits!

Happy Easter Egg Hunting!
