The Dr. Tavel Eye Healthy Food Challenge has gotten a little fishy…fishy with the eye healthy salmon for dinner of course!  Salmon and other cold-water fish have numerous health benefits helping our entire body including our eyes.  Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin A and other eye healthy nutrients are found in salmon and other fish so go fishing for tonight’s meal to be eye healthy.

I, personally, am not a fish eater.  It is not from my parent’s dislike of fish that I don’t like it as they enjoy salmon and other fish regularly. And I have even been forced to try fish but at the end of the day I simply do not like it.  Too bad for me as salmon truly wins in the Dr. Tavel Eye Healthy Food Challenge in its eye health abilities as well as overall health benefits.

Pair grilled salmon with a large spinach salad including eye healthy nuts and fruits and you can truly multiply the eye healthy nutrients in just one meal. Dr. Tavel, like many other Indiana eye doctors, would definitely approve of a meal like the one below for its multiple eye healthy foods and benefits!
