Last week, we discovered that Omega-3 fatty acids are an essential fatty acids that individuals with ADD and ADHD must include in their diets(in case you missed it, read more here). Omega-3s can help fight inflammation and improve ADD and ADHD symptoms. Yesterday we featured a delicious salmon recipe, but I realized many people do not eat fish for a number of reasons. As a result, today I am focusing on flaxseed. Flaxseeds are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, manganese, and vitamin B1. If you are anything like me, getting out the door in the morning can be a major struggle and I don’t even have kids to worry about. Thats why this recipe I recently discovered, No Bake Energy Bites, is one of the many quick bites I like to have for those (many) chaotic mornings. I have created my own version of these, which I have included below. I prefer almond butter, but you can substitute with other types of nut butter. If you add the chia seeds to these delicious bites of energy, then you will increase the nutritional density of these delightful snacks. These energy bites are quick and easy to make and don’t require any cooking. I hope you all enjoy.
