Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

The Accessible Pantry: Healthy Eating on a String Bean Budget

Fresh tomatoes and a corer: fresh vegetables are a great part of healthy eating.
Healthy eating isn’t always easy. With vision loss, the thought of cooking something healthy is often too much to think about! It may be easier to pull something out of a box and pop it in the oven or microwave.

However, prepared meals in a box can be on the pricey side. Healthier food options can also mean more expensive.

How can someone with vision loss eat healthy, stay on a budget and not get frustrated in the kitchen?

Our new workshop, the Accessible Pantry: Healthy Eating on a String Bean Budget, is packed with ideas to help you maintain healthy eating habits, stay on a budget and gain the confidence to do it independently!

You’ll learn how to:

  • choose food items that are healthy and less expensive,
  • access and store recipes for cooking on your own,
  • label and organize for independent food prep,
  • cook in bulk and portion with less mess, and
  • minimize food waste with storage tips.
