Dairy, eggs and meat are rich in protein, fat (which your body needs!), vitamins, minerals, and some antioxidants. Look for low-sodium dairy and meat products, preferably without the use of hormones or antibiotics. You’ll notice that I recommend whole egg products—that’s because the yolks contain essential nutrients for brain and eye health.
