For your eyes only….

Hello friends!

Welcome to the healthy corner.

With mobiles and other bright screens filling our lives, our eyes need a lot more caring than we normally do. We can’t avoid Laptop & mobile fully but we can control  by taking break in every half an hour while using screen &  improve eyesight by eating healthy food.   Proper care of eyes is utmost responsibility of everyone.

Some of us know and agree the importance of eating fruits & veggies that can help our eyes. But very few actually take little extra efforts to make juices  & follow proper  intake of nutrients daily.

So I decided to make fruits/veg juices that are especially  good for eyes . So last full week every morning I prepared  1 juice with different main ingredients so kids will have variety of  taste & colors. I’m so surprised when twins had finished juices in one go & wanted more. There is sense of fulfillment when you see your kids enjoying healthy food.

So  starting 7 DAYS SERIES for healthy food starting with 7 different easy & highly nutritious juices  for eyes.

For lazy Sunday -Red Eye opener

  • 1/2 cup finely cut beetroot

Tips

  • Fruits & veggies are healthiest option but if you are allergic to any fruit/veg, diabetic or  having any chronic disease, please consult Doctor before taking any of these juices.
  • For juicing you don’t need high end Juicer, With normal  blender/mixer you can  make perfect juice only effort is straining juice & cutting fruits/veggies into small-medium size pieces.  For Juicer fruits/veggies can be cut into big pieces but cleaning  all parts of juicer is little tedious.
  • I prefer blender when juice ingredients are soft, seedless & less in quantity . Otherwise I always prefer juicer
  • To sieve or not is personal choice
  • Don’t worry about quantity 1/4th glass is also sufficient if you are taking juices regularly.
  • Morning is best time for having juice & drink it immediately after juicing.
  • Here I used less & easily available fruits/veggies, you can add ingredients of your choice.
  • Wash fruits/veggies thoroughly before cutting.

Thanks for visiting & I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
