Food and Recipes Good for Macular Degeneration

AMD Recipes from the Eat Right for Your Sight™ Cookbook:

Many people wonder, “what are the best foods for macular degeneration?” Proper nutrition is critical to eye health, and it’s important to know not only what to eat, but also how much. We’ve put together a cookbook – Eat Right for Your Sight™, featuring eye-healthy nutrient-rich ingredients in 83 easy and delicious recipes.

We’re happy to share a few of our favorites from Eat Right for Your Sight™, as well as some nutritional guidelines for maintaining healthy vision.

AMD Recipes from The Eat Right for Your Sight™ Cooking Show:

The “Eat Right for Your Sight” four part cooking series includes science-based AMD diet recipes for reducing the risk of macular degeneration progression, along with tips on safe cooking practices.

AMD Recipes from Feast for the Eyes® calendar:

In 2017, AMDF put together a calendar featuring AMD healthy recipes for each month of the year. We’ve now made those recipes available, free to download, along with a shopping list for each recipe.
