Healthy Warm Lentil and Salmon Salad Bowl

With Marika Day

This delicious Warm Lentil and Salmon Salad Bowl helps promote good eye health with some tasty, carefully chosen ingredients.

Salmon is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids which can help prevent macular degeneration, glaucoma and even dry eyes. The lentils contain low GI carbohydrates. A healthy diet and regular exercise can help reduce the likelihood of developing serious eye conditions. The high zinc content helps your eyes produce melanin and is important in maintaining good eye health.

The orange that gives this dish it’s fresh, zesty flavour is full of vitamin C. Vitamin C may help in maintaining healthy blood vessels in your eyes and should be part of a balanced diet.
