How often do you think of improving your eating habits or forget to take your supplements?

If you understand how important a balanced nutrition is for your overall health but feel unsure about what to eat to obtain those nutrients, just take a look at the top tips below. It is never too late to start changing your habits.

Here are the top five tips to improve your eating habits and nutrient intake:

  • Add Flaxseed to your smoothies.

    Flaxseed is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which are important for maintaining the health of your retina.
    Other sources include: Salmon, Walnuts, Soybeans, Halibut

  • Have a handful of almonds next time you need a quick snack.

    Almonds consist of Vitamin E which plays a role in maintaining the lubricant in your eyes and also avoiding the environmental damage to your eyes.
    Other sources include: Sunflower seeds, Vegetable Oils, Tomatoes, Pine nuts

  • Eat some strawberries for an after-meal snack.

    Strawberries are a great source for Vitamin C and actually contain more Vitamin C in a serving than oranges. Consumption of Vitamin C may reduce the risk of developing cataracts.
    Other sources include: Sweet Red Peppers, Guava, Kiwi, Orange

  • Add beans or brown rice as a side to any dish.

    Beans are great sources for Zinc which helps your body absorb Vitamin A and aids in antioxidant enzyme function (which is science speak for—Zinc is great for you!). Zinc is also known to protect your eyes from night blindness and macular degeneration.
    Other sources include: Seafood (shellfish and fish), Spinach, Beef or Lamb, Cashews

  • Finally, eat your lunch outdoors.

    The sun is a great, FREE source of Vitamin D--take advantage of it! Vitamin D may help avoid age-related macular degeneration.
    Other sources include: Salmon, Milk, Eggs, Mushrooms

Following these small steps can help improve your daily nutrition intake and possibly lead to a healthier lifestyle.
