Foods to help fight vision loss

Jennifer Thompson and Dr. Johanna Seddon, a leading eye doctor and researcher, teamed up to write the cookbook “Eat Right for Your Sight,” a guide to help you protect your sight beginning in your kitchen.

“If you take away one thing from this cookbook, it’s the new holy trinity of food: three different colors a day,” said Thompson.

Think of the red in peppers and pomegranates; the purple in beets; the green in leafy green veggies; and the yellow in butternut squash. That’s where the nutrients are found for eye health. Vitamins A and E, as well as Omega-3 fatty acids, found in cold water fish, make a direct impact on your sight.
