A Summer Recipe for Healthy Eyes

Noble Vision GroupA Summer Recipe for Healthy Eyes

Yesterday we posted an infographic highlighting some of the most important foods for keeping your eyes healthy. With the weather heating up and the 4th of July only a day away, we started thinking of ways to make summer grilling a little more eye-healthy.

We wouldn’t expect anyone to forgo the traditional 4th of July burgers and hot dogs, but we found a couple recipes that you can try throughout the summer to give your eyes the nutrients they need.

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in oily fish like trout, help prevent against macular degeneration and other age-related vision problems while offering a number of other health benefits. The antioxidant lutein, found in kale and other greens, also helps prevent AMD and reduces the risk of cataracts.

With that said, here is a delicious summertime meal rich with omega-3 and lutein so you can keep your eyes healthy this summer. Give it a try and let us know what you think.Grilled Trout for Healthy Eyes

Grilled Trout with Oregano

Ingredients

- 4 whole trout (about 12 ounces each), cleaned and scaled
- 1 lemon, sliced into 8 rounds, plus 1 lemon cut into wedges for garnish
- 1 large bunch fresh oregano

Directions

1. Lightly coat grill or broiler pan with cooking spray; heat grill or broiler. Sprinkle exterior and cavity of each fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt, and season with pepper. Place two lemon rounds and a few oregano sprigs in cavity of each fish.

2. Spray fish with cooking spray; place on grill or under broiler. Cook until golden and firm, about 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to serving platter; drizzle each fish with 1 teaspoon oil. Garnish with lemon wedges and remaining oregano.
