After months of research we had all of the food information at our fingertips. Now we had to choose our team. Which foods would make the cut?
To become an eyefood, a food had to contain either a very high amount of a specific eye nutrient, or a balance of all of the eye nutrients. We set our standards, and then after days of chart making and analysis we had our team. These foods would become the basis of the eyefoods plan.
In our book, Eyefoods: A Food Plan for Healthy Eyes, we explain why each food made the cut to become part of the eyefoods team and we offer meal ideas and tips on how to include eyefoods into a busy lifestyle.
But there is more. Dr. Barb and I have always said "It is one thing to know which foods to eat to keep you healthy, but it is another thing to consistently include these foods into our diets." Our next goal was to create a plan to solve this very problem.
