The green color of avocados is from the pigment, lutein, the orange pigment of an orange bell pepper (in this recipe) is from zeaxanthin. These “super-nutrients”, which are featured prominently in this recipe, help absorb UV Light and offer antioxidant protection for the macula and retina.
Additionally, avocados and goat cheese are good sources of the water-soluble B family of vitamins, which are so important for metabolic function.

These are important functions for eye wellness since the eyes are very metabolically active.
