What? You never thought of food as being ADHD friendly (or not)?
Let’s see…. choose a snack: a bag of chips and a cola or celery sticks with hummus and bottled water.
Which do you think would be better for your brain?
All brains need good food and healthy lifestyles in order to function at their best. ADHD brains, being ADHD after all, are a little pickier.
Lean proteins, complex carbs, colorful fruits and veggies, and lots of water fit the bill.
Specifically, here are some suggestions:
Look for no sugar, high fiber, complex carbs – whole grains, and real fruit. Here are a few that meet those requirements and taste good too:
Alternatives to Chips
Marys Gone Crackers organic, gluten free, vegan, and just plain good
Doctor Kracker products that have whole grains, Omega 3’s and fiber
Newmans Own Pretzels organic, high fiber, and a good source of protein
Don’t you feel healthier just reading that?
Be sure to stock up on some of these snacks the next time you’re at the store. Then when you have a snack attack you can do something good for you and your brain. 🙂
