Cooking and Meals: Master Your Kitchen
For many cooking is a joy; for others it's a simple necessity. Unfortunately, the onset of even minor vision loss can turn what used to be a pleasure into a chore. The anxiety you may be feeling about preparing food is understandable. After all, you're literally playing with fire. Even so, with practice and a few modifications to your cooking space, you can continue to prepare food safely, independently, and well.
This section contains tips on grocery shopping and preparing food. For tips on kitchen organization and safety, see Your Kitchen. Please note that these are suggestions. Contact your state or local rehabilitation agency for training on safe cooking techniques.
