We break from this fashion and beauty blog to bring you some important info on your eye health…

One of the most common questions I'm asked from my patients is "Should I be taking vitamins for my eyes?" The answer is: not necessarily. You can actually obtain vital nutrients and vitamins to benefit your eyes from certain foods. Lutein is an important nutrient to help prevent macular degeneration and is found in green, leafy veggies. Kale is a great source of lutein. My problem is I think it taste horrible. I tried incorporating it into my juicing plan awhile back, but I just couldn't acquire a taste for it. Kale chips are my second relationship attempt with this less than exciting veggie. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised…

What you need: 
1 bag of organic kale greens
sea salt
Extra virgin olive oil (I like the spray version) 

What you do: 
preheat oven to 400 degrees
spread kale greens onto an ungreased cookie sheet
spray with olive oil
sprinkle with sea salt
bake in oven for 15-18 minutes or until crispy

Have you tried kale chips before?

    I love Nature's greens - I work with them and all their pre packed greens are so fresh and crisp. Thanks for this recipe! Good idea!
