This month’s healthy eye recipe is fresh and bright with a super-boost of eye-friendly nutrients such as Vitamin A, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Lycopene from the tomatoes, plus rich flavor from one of the healthiest fats for overall health – especially eyesight. Salmon, a well-known natural source of vitamin D, also happens to be one of the best sources for omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to have tremendous eye-related health benefits.

These power-packed little good-for-you fats can help reduce the risk of Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), help treat dry eye disease, and they are a core building block in both cholesterol and hormone synthesis. What’s more, salmon is especially heart-healthy for women! Because the risk of heart disease increases as women’s estrogen levels drop beginning around age 40, it is wise for aging women to seek natural ways of protecting their tickers; adding a fatty fish such as salmon to your diet can help reduce inflammation of blood vessels that may lead to heart disease and strokes.

  • 2 tablespoons butter
