Did you read my last ADD Success blog post? That’s where we talk about how Omega-3s reduce ADHD symptoms
If you did you know:
– a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce ADHD symptoms.
– Chia seeds are one of my favorite ways to easily add Omega-3s and protein to an ADHD-friendly diet.
– Prominent ADHD doctors Ned Hallowell and Daniel Amen recommend adults with ADHD get between 2,000 and 4,000 mg of Omega-3s each day to make living with ADHD easier.
My Chia Seed Secret Weapon
To live successfully with ADHD you have to make things easy.
That’s why I adore my incredibly easy way of sneaking Omega-3 rich chia seeds into my family’s diet. Even though I’m the only one of us with ADHD, Omega 3s are healthy for us all.
I keep one of those Parmesan cheese shakers they have at pizza parlors full of chia seeds one step away on my kitchen shelf. (Don’t know what I mean by steps? You need to read my book, Organized for Life!)
To slip 2,000 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids into my family’s diet in a flash, I simply grab the shaker of chia seeds off the shelf and dash about a tablespoon into smoothies, oatmeal, waffles and eggs.
Do I measure them out? Of course not! Measuring takes too many steps.
Even Favorite Daughter, with her amazingly sensitive tastebuds, doesn’t suspect they’re there, though she does turn up her nose at flax seeds and walnuts.
I’m sneaky that way.
