Eating right for your sight is simple and delicious with this fantastic one-pan eye-healthy recipe. Orange peppers are a great source of carotenoids, lutein, and zeaxanthin, all of which are important for vision and eye health, and may curb the development of macular degeneration and glaucoma.
Make this healthy recipe a tasty treat with fish, chicken, mussels or shrimp — or leave out the meat completely and serve it over pasta. You can also replace coconut milk with heavy cream for a heavenly splurge. This is definitely a recipe friends and family will want you to make again and again!
(If you’re interested in roasting your own peppers, here’s an easy healthy recipe!)
