My Optometrist Calgary is pleased to be partnering with Made Foods, a group whose mission is to make healthy, sustainable, delicious food convenient and accessible to our community. Healthy food choices not only benefit overall health and wellness, but proper nutrition can dramatically reduce the risk of certain eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration, so it’s easy to see why we love Made Foods so much.
Additionally, being in health care, we see many patients who struggle to make the changes necessary to improve their wellness and lifestyle. Consequently, some of these individuals find themselves developing systemic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease – illnesses which can also manifest in the eyes. Other patients are simply curious about healthy eating and want to learn more to better feed themselves and their families. This is where Made Foods can help. They specialize in ready-made fresh, nutritious whole foods prepared from scratch by a local chef, and even better, their food is sourced from local farmers who provide the highest quality food on the market.
Made Foods also offers a series of nutritional programs to help their clients curb their cravings, increase energy, and achieve and maintain a healthy weight, from their 3 Day Quick Start to their Made in 21 Days program. All programs include an initial assessment and plan developed by a holistic nutritionist, but for our My Optometrist Calgary patients, Made has generously offered to provide as much nutritional counselling as necessary to achieve their healthy eating goals. What great support!
At My Optometrist Calgary, we’re all about eye and whole-body health, supporting local businesses and brands, and giving back to our local and global community. This collaboration combines all of those passions, and we look forward to having wonderful local resources to better serve our patients.
