From an idea by The American Macular Degeneration Foundation

Safeguard your vision with 85 simple, satisfying recipes rich in the nutrients that fight macular degeneration

The Bad News: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of central vision loss in adults over the age of fifty. It can wreak havoc on the ability to see faces, read, drive, and move about safely. Millions of people are at risk, and we still don’t have a cure.

The Good News: The latest research suggests that healthy lifestyle choices, including a diet rich in lutein, zeaxanthin, and other key nutrients, can delay the onset and progress of AMD. Eat Right for Your Sight provides a delicious way to add the best ingredients for eye health to every meal of the day. Feast your eyes on these appealing recipes:
  • Sweet Pea Guacamole
  • Chicken-Vegetable Noodle Bowls
  • Garlic-Lime Pork Chops
  • Carrot-Ginger Juice . . . and more!
Every recipe includes comprehensive nutrition information and has been carefully crafted to act like medicine but not taste like it. Taking care of your eyes has never been easier!

With Recipes from Lidia Bastianich, Ina Garten, Jacques Pépin , Alice Waters, Andrew Weil, MD, and other superstars of healthy cooking.

Review quotes
“A diet rich in lutein, zeaxanthin and other key nutrients may delay the onset and progress of age-related macular degeneration (the leading cause of central vision loss in adults over 50), and these recipes can help fit eye health into every meal.”—Food and Nutrition Magazine

Eat Right for Your Sight is a beautifully illustrated, 240 page compendium comprise of palate pleasing, appetite satisfying, nutritionally enhanced dishes that would be appropriate for any and all dining occasions—and have the additional benefit of being impressive sources of the kinds of nutrients that healthy eyes and eyesight require.”—Midwest Book Review

“I often call my medical thrillers ‘Cook Books,’ but Eat Right for Your Sight is a wonderful real one that proves Benjamin Franklin’s adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!”
Robin Cook, MD, best-selling author and physician

“This isn’t just a cookbook for eye health, it’s a blueprint for healthy eating in general. I love all the nutrition tips: combine spinach and strawberries to maximize your iron absorption; add roasted squash to hummus puree to boost your vitamin A intake. And it really should be called Eat Right Tonight. There are so many dishes I want to make right now. Grilled Oysters. Pumpkin Pappardelle. Pear and Raspberry Galette. If this is health food, I want to see the light!”
