“Go Nuts” Over the Holidays to Helps Your Vision

Until I read an article on, I had no clue how healthy it was to eat 1 oz. Pistachios a day. They are rich in LUTEIN & ZEAXANTHIN - the eye healthy plant compound found in all eye vitamins and listed second of the 9 healthiest nuts you can eat. They are also good for weight loss BUT only if you limit yourself to 1 oz. a day. Because I’m guilty of eating too many at a time, I like to buy them in the shell so it takes longer to eat them. SOMETIMES that works! What other foods are rich in Lutein & Zeaxanthin that surprised you? Let’s get the word out! Linda Hoopes, Advocate

  1. thanks for this tip. I didn't know this about pistachios! I'll be buying some today. My doctor also recommends brazil nuts for me for their selenium, but no more than one or two a day. Wendy, Advocate.

    1. I did indeed buy some pistachios, but I bought roasted and salted nuts by mistake. I always try for nuts in their natural state. I need to check if the roasted nuts lose any of their goodness. Wendy, Advocate.
