If you or your children have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression, trouble focusing, low energy, or are gaining weight, you might want to consider that your dopamine levels are low.
Dopamine is crucial for the control of motion, and according to Brenda Nicholson, your dopamine levels can be reduced by stress, lack of sleep, and a poor diet.
You can increase dopamine levels in your ADHD children (and in your own body) by eating these 5 foods…
- Lima beans
- Pumpkin and sesame seeds
My favorite are the almonds. Almonds can be a good snack and a great alternative to junk food like chips and cookies. Just pop a handful of almonds in your kids’ lunch box and you’re good to go. You can even find recipes for seasoning your own almonds so your kids are happy with the flavor of them.
Do you have any popular, fun recipes that include some of these foods? If so, share them in the comments below…
