Healthy Brekkie Greens

With Marika Day

This fresh and tasty breakfast plate is loaded with carotenoids, which are found in the macular of the eye.


Broccoli and our leafy greens are rich in vitamin C, E and plant based Vitamin A, which is important for good vision. A deficiency in these essential vitamins can lead to serious eye conditions.

The zinc in the egg yolk, will help your body absorb the zeaxanthin and lutein from the egg and veggies. Zeaxanthin and lutein are important in maintaining good eye health including the macula.
