A lot of you already know that two of my passions are photography and scrapbooking. One blog that I follow regularly is from Becky Higgins and that is where I found my Healthy Eye Friday Recipe for today! (By the way, if you are into creating memories of your experiences yourself, check out Becky’s Project Life: http://www.beckyhiggins.com/projectlife/ )
This recipe is wonderful for the health of the eyes: Walnuts have omega-3 (dry eyes and macular health), Corn gives us a shot of lutein (macular health), and the tomatoes and green are excellent sources of anti-oxidants (overall eye health)!
Thanks Becky for this great recipe!!
