Today’s recipe: A mouth-watering Greek salad with tomatoes.
Tomatoes are packed with carotenoids, including lycopene. Research shows that lycopene present in ocular tissues helps prevent light-induced damage to the retina and other areas of the eye. Tomatoes are also an excellent source of vitamin C, another vision protector. So onto the recipe…

1/4 green bell pepper
1/4 red onion
Handful of olives

Sprinkle of oregano
