Keeping your eyes in tip-top shape is not only about having clear vision or taking dry eye drops from time to time. Your eyes, just like any part of your body, can benefit from the nutrients you eat. As the sayings goes… you are what you eat – and the same goes for your eyes.
After your workout (which also benefits your eye health) it’s time for recovery, and what better way to give your body and your eyes the nutrients they need than a protein packed, post workout smoothie.
Kale is a super food packed with nutrients that are great for your eyes, but we know not everyone can get behind the taste of kale. A smoothie is a tasty way to get the health benefits of kale.
1 Handful of Kale leaves
¾ Cup of Strawberries (About 6 depending on size)
2 Tablespoons chia seeds
1-2 Cups of water – You can spice it up and use coconut water, orange juice, soy milk, or almond mix. Feel free to experiment and find what you like the best!
For a boost of extra protein add 1 scoop of protein power – plain, vanilla, or strawberry works best for this recipe.
Simply add all the ingredients to your blender – then blend until liquefied. And there you have it!
