The “Light Twins”, as they are known from their vlog, are from Lion’s Head, Ontario. They each bare witness to the transformation involved with embracing a raw vegan diet and share inspiration on how to maintain this lifestyle.
One twin speaks of how he failed one of his driver’s license tests due to his poor eyesight. Since becoming a raw vegan and maintaining the lifestyle, his eyesight has naturally corrected by itself and his new driver’s license states that no corrective lenses are needed!
“I’m not going to tell you guys that raw food fixed my eyes, but I mean…it’s what happened! Everything about my body is better, even ideas come quicker!” says one of the Light Twins. (1)
Many people who have adopted a raw food lifestyle share about the health benefits of living this way: more energy, improved skin complexion, better digestion, weight loss and a significant drop in the risk of developing diseases. (1)
There are countless testimonials of people who have noticed surprising physical changes that they never would have expected, after switching to raw, such as drastic changes in eye color (3) and hair growth where there used to be hair loss. (2)
Foods, such as dark leafy greens, contribute to better vision; enjoy them raw and organic!
Be creative with your greens! Blend them up, put them in a salad, snack with a delicious raw veggie dip or even juice to your heart’s content! Here’s a list of top fruits and veggies to aid eye health:
- Spinach (try this easy green smoothie)
- Oranges, citrus fruits
- Bell peppers
- Romaine lettuce
- Collard greens (4)
Cataract development is less likely when consuming foods like greens that are rich in zeaxanthin and lutein
At Tufts University, a study of 1,802 women, ages 50 to 79, concluded that consuming foods rich in lutein and zeaxanthin (e.g. kale and turnip greens), resulted in participants being 23% less likely to develop cataracts. Lutein is an antioxidant that gives eyes and skin excellent nutritional support.(4)
The Eye Institute agrees with the fact that raw foods help prevent vision problems; they also suggest consuming foods high in lutein, zeaxanthin and vitamins such as C and A and E. (4)
