Make School Lunch Exciting & Fun with Sandwich Art

At the beginning of the school year, I was extremely worried about how my daughter would do. She has been kicked out of 2 schools already. Being homeschooled she wasn't use to working all day or being in a more rigid routine. To attempt to make school as fun as I could I began with a behavior prize bucket; whereas, if she had a good day and could tell me one thing she liked about school she would be able to select a small prize from the bucket. The bucket only lasted about the first 6 weeks and then faded away.

Over this journey, I have become a champion for healthy eating. I continue to preach that We Are What We Eat (#WeRWhatWeEat). I am a true testimony of what the difference can make, not only for weight, but overall health. This includes mood, behavior, and concentration for my 7 year old with ADHD, SPD, & DDMD. ADHD diets for kids and adults are not a new thing. Many in the blogasphere contest whether or not they are effective. I believe they are highly effective if implemented consistently and with all the important pieces in place.

I am a real believer that We Are What We Eat! If you put junk in your body, then you will get junk back. Over the years, we have learned the impact that food has on behavior, mood, and overall health. Essential we have stumbled into our creating an effective ADHD diet that really works. My daughter's focus, moods, and behavior improved. I was able to lose 50 pounds while also reducing my migraines, heartburn, sore joints while gaining better sleep and way more energy, by following the Wheat Belly Diet.

Summer is officially here. Most schools are done. Most homeschooling is wrapping up, and many of the private schools have posted their signs for next year registration. It is a time when children feel free and many parents feel trapped. LOL! A strange juxtaposition, don't you think? In all seriousness, I hope that this summer you will take a good hard look at the past year of "school." Were you happy with how your school year went? How did your child fair?  The reason I ask is because now is the time to see if you need to make changes. 

Sometimes the Best You Can Do is Un-Learn to Move Forward

Sometime you have to unlearn what you thought you knew before you can learn to move forward

Albert Einstein said it best, "The definition of insanity is repeating the same behaviors and expecting a different outcome." Yet, all too often we do this. Why? Frankly, I believe it's because we get stuck in our frame of mind. Our whole lives is a learning process. Each encounter and experience help shape our opinions, expectations, and understanding of a situations. All this "knowledge" helps us connect the dots in life; right?

Well, sort of.

Dietary Supplements for Better Focus, Attention, Sleep, & Mood

I would love to say that our kids eat enough variety of foods to get all the nutrients their bodies need. However, most kids (and adults) do not. Those missing nutrients are vital to our well being. In our experience, adding a handful of supplements throughout the day has had positive impact on our daughter's ability to focus, provided better moods, improved her sleep, and helped make our days happier.

My Word for the 2018 New Year

Every year I pick one word that I want to reflect the upcoming year's focus. Last year for 2017 I chose Breathe (and I needed to do that a lot). This year it took me almost 3 weeks to decide the word I wanted to sum up my hopes for the upcoming New Year. After much consideration, my word for the 2018 New Year is SHARE.

It is my goal to SHARE more . . .
