My smoothies each provide a great big BLAST of eye-fighting nutrients -- vitamins C and E, zinc, lutein, and beta carotene. They're the perfect concoctions for people who want to go that extra mile, as well as people who aren't interested in popping extra supplemental pills.
Calories always count, so remember to factor these smoothies into your plan's total calories. If weight is an issue, split into two servings and enjoy as a snack . . . or, count one full serving as your breakfast -- either way the math is a snap. If weight is not an issue, enjoy a daily serving whenever you wish.
