Homemade Eye-Healthy Guacamole
Who doesn’t love a good chip and dip combo? Guacamole is not only delicious but the star ingredient, the avocado, is PACKED with eye-healthy nutrients! Avocados not only increase antioxidant absorption from other eye-healthy foods, but they also contain powerful antioxidants themselves. They contain healthy fats and the ever-important carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. Add that to the benefits of tomatoes and onions mixed in and we have one amazing snack!
