Bless My Eyes, For Now I Can See!
About the Recipe
That’s right; carrots are great for your eyes! Okay, it’s not the actual carrot; it is the beta-carotene that is in the carrot. When it is converted to Vitamin A in the liver, it is then transformed to rhodopsin, a purple-colored pigment that is used at night to see. Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant that aids against macular degeneration, which happens to be the leading cause of blindness in the elderly.
Carrots and kale, what more can I say? Did Bugs Bunny ever wear glasses? No. Did he have X-ray vision like Superman? No. Will you have X-ray vision? Probably not.
