Does what you eat really impact your vision?
Absolutely! Says Dr. Capogna and Dr. Pelletier, optometrists and authors, of the book Eyefoods, A Food Plan for Healthy Eyes. In fact, there are about 64 foods that if included as part of your regular diet can help keep your eyes healthy and prevent eye disease.
Guess what’s on the top of the Eye food list…
Kale and other dark-leafy green vegetables are some of the top eye foods around! Kale has been said to be a “vegetable multi-vitamin” packing tons of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Potassium. When aiming for the most nutrient dense vegetables for your eyes – think dark green (spinach, kale, collards, swiss chard ) and bright red or orange (bell peppers, sweet potato, squash and of course…carrots!). Foods like whole grains and certain types of fish are important too.
At Cookin’ Greens we produce flash-frozen dark-leafy vegetables and vegetables blends.
We know the importance of healthy eating for your eyes and whole health!
Cookin’ Greens is pleased to partner with Eyefoods! So what does this partnership look like? We’ve collaborated with two dynamic optometrists, Dr. Capogna and Dr. Pelletier.

Cookin’ Greens frozen vegetables are different because they offer you the dark-leafy greens that are time consuming to prepare but you know are important to your daily nutritional needs.
