A significant number of the eye diseases we know today are connected to inflammation. Looking into such inflammations further, we see that some of the meals we eat are culpable in the development of such inflammations.
Most of such meals with the guilt of contributing in our vulnerability to inflammation are more readily consumed in this period of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. These meals come with an alarming amount of sugar and calories. While they are agreeably delicious, the long-term danger associated with them outweighs their tantalizing feel on our taste buds.
While the holiday comes rightly with its dose of merriment with our cutlery working laboriously this period, we must ensure to eat wisely. Foods with a voluptuous amount of sugar hurt our eyes, making them especially more susceptible to chronic inflammations. Sweets, sugar, and fats are among the accomplices lurking to unleash havoc on your vision this period.
The question now is how you can eat healthily with your vision in mind, or, eating foods that are anti-inflammation. Let us briefly examine some of these meals and the way you can sneak through the danger this holiday.
Snacks are pretty notorious for their calorie composition. Many of us are admittedly stuck in a fiery love relationship with snacks. After all, snacks are quick and ready to go, and delicious all the same saving us the draining hassle of going to the kitchen to take the time to prepare something. However, despite the fact that snacks are quite an automated delicacy, an exaggerated and habitual consumption of it is not good for your eyes either. Rather than eat such snacks all day, for the sake of your eyes, it would be safer if you try reduce taking such snacks to during mealtimes, and sometimes just a few bites would healthily do.
For all those high calorie foods, you can try moderate the intense calorie composition with some raw vegetable sticks. When you bring in vegetables to such meals, you ameliorate things to being conducive enough for eyes. While in the topic of fresh vegetables, try to minimize the habit of dipping them in dips and the like.
Here comes desserts. You love them right? Yes, it is common knowledge that they are addictively delicious. But for the health of your eyes, you should reduce the hefty consumption of desserts. Two moderate sized servings would do. To mitigate the tendency to overly indulge in desserts, try to include foods like nuts, tomatoes, and olive oils into your main meals.
You should also be wary of pastry this period. The high-fat composition, as well as its capricious composition of calories, is not the best for your eyes either, when talking about inflammation. Leafy greens would go well if you must go with pastry. Still, on calorie composition, pecan pie has as much as double the calorie composition in something like pumpkin pie!
Therefore, keeping an eye for healthier alternatives to our habitual meals this holiday period will go a long way in sustaining the health of our eyes. Now, the only question is, do you have the willpower to see it so? Good luck and Happy Holidays!
