ADD/ADHD Organic Breakfast Recipes

Scrambled eggs, Turkey Bacon, & French Toast

I select organic (no hormones, no antibiotics, cage free) eggs at Wal-Mart.  He scrambles about about 3-4 eggs, sprinkles on top Garlic Pepper (McCormick- can purchase at Wal-Mart), and Lactose Free Veggie Shreds (Parmesan, Mozzarella, & Romano Flavor or Cheddar Flavor) on top of his eggs.

In a pan large enough to cook French Toast, I put one heaping tbsp of Organic Garden of Life or Nutiva Coconut oil (Sold at Health Food Stores) and let it melt. I toast one slice of bread from Nature’s Own  Organic Honey Wheat Bread (No High Fructose Corn Syrup- can purchase at Wal-Mart). In a bowel large enough to put fit one slice of toast, I whip up 1 organic egg. Then I dunk both sides of the bread in the egg and lay in the pan. I pour the remaining egg on each side of the bread until done cooking. I dice up fruit (organic strawberries, bananas, mango, peaches– can purchase at Publix) and put on top of French Toast. I sprinkle 2 tbsp of Wal-nuts (high in Omegas and great for ADD/ADHD) on top of fruit. Then I pour 1 to 2 tbsp of Organic Maple B syrup over everything. Totally yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oatmeal, Turkey Sausage, & Scrambled eggs

I cook the eggs the same as up above. I select Organic Quaker Maple & Brown Sugar (can purchase at Publix). I mix 1 cup of Silk Vanilla Soy milk in the oatmeal. We always heat up in a pan and try our best to not use the microwave. We normally drink and use Rice Dream Vanilla Organic Rice Milk but if you use it in oatmeal it makes it very sticky and sweet. Charlie likes his oatmeal soup-like. I will sprinkle almonds or walnuts in his oatmeal to top it off. We don’t usually use butter can put 1/2 tbsp of Smart Balance (Non-Hydrogenated) Butter.

Omelet Sandwich, Turkey Bacon, & Organic Cheerios Cereal with Fruit

Mix in a large bowel 3-4 organic eggs. Pour about 1/2 to 2ozs (your choice) of Rice milk and beat together. In a large pan put one heaping tbsp of organic coconut oil. Toast 2 slices of organic honey wheat bread and butter (Smart Balance Butter) both sides of bread. Sometimes Charlie will put his bacon in the sandwich other times he eats it on the side. In his cereal he uses organic rice milk or almond milk (Blue Diamond Almond Breeze–can purchase at Publix, Wal-Mart, or Winn-Dixie) and organic fruit (blue berries, strawberries, bananas, or raspberries).

*Another great cereal choice is Organic or regular “Back To Nature,” and they have many different flavors to choose from.  Some of Charlie’s favorite flavors are cinnamon and apple cereal.

Turkey Sausage Egg Casserole

8 slices of cubed Organic Nature’s Own honey Wheat Bread (Wal-Mart)

2 cups of Shredded Lactose Free Veggie Shreds Cheddar Flavor (Publix)

4 oz of fresh organic sliced mushrooms (Publix)

4 beaten organic eggs (Wal-Mart)

3/4 tsp Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard

3 cups of Soy, Rice, or Almond milk (your choice) We prefer Soy when we cook

1 can of organic cream of mustard soup (Winn Dixie, Publix, or Health Food Market)

1 to 1 1/2 lb of Turkey Sausage

Layer cubed bread, browned sausage, cheese, and mushrooms. Combine eggs, mustard, and 2 1/2 cup of milk. Pour over layers, cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight. When ready to bake, combine soup and 1/2 cup of milk. Pour over the casserole and bake @ 300 for 1 1/2 hours.

Biometics Chocolate Protein Shake with Peanut Butter & Toast

Toast 2 slices of Nature’s Own Organic Honey Wheat Bread and spread peanut butter on both slices. To make Charlie’s protein shake: In your blender or bullet mixer, empty one packet of Biometics Chocolate Pro Fit (17g protein). He mixes 8ozs of Rice Dream Organic Vanilla Milk and one large heaping scoop of MaraNatha all Organic Creamy Peanut Butter (Winn Dixie, Publix, Health Food Market) then blends together. Sometimes Charlie will add a banana or strawberries to his protein shake. 

This protein shake is sooo fricking delicious and gentle on your tummy. Protein drinks can be hard to digest and usually isn’t recommend for kids. But because Biometics Pro Fit has a built in protein enzyme that helps break down everything–no bloating or farting 🙂 and is gentle on the kidneys, kids are able to drink this everyday. You may even get hooked. Charlie usually drinks his protein shake during the week when he’s in school. During the weekend he will eat his big breakfast meals. ADD/ADHD need 60-70% protein in their breakfast because it helps stabilize their blood sugars and 30-40% complex carbohydrates. These carbs are important versus simple carbs because they are high in fiber. This means your body must work to break complex carbs down into glucose. This is a slow process releasing glucose into the bloodstream providing a long lasting energy versus a sugar rush and crash leaving the brain foggy.

TIP # 1:

Watch out for cereals because they are the worst culprits. Most contain High Fructose Corn syrup and everything else!! Stick to organic and healthy cerals that do not have:

*artificial dyes, color, or flavors

*no pesticides or chemicals

*or ingredients you can not pronounce

TIP # 2:

*If you do not like coconut taste, buy Spectrum Organic Coconut oil (Publix).

*When selecting coconut oil try to buy Extra Virgin.

*Coconut oil is the only oil you should use to cook or fry with because it doesn’t become toxic or turns into trans fats when heated like other oils!!!!!! (Frying destroys antioxidants causing oils to oxidize)

*Must be organic coconut oil and Non-hydrogenated.

Benefits of Coconut Oil:

1. Contains the MOST saturated fat and is made up of short and medium chain oils that can help lower LDL cholesterol because they remove fatty plaques from your blood stream.

2. Also rebuilds and repairs damage nervous system (which is why it’s in formulas for premature infants).

3. Speeds up metabolism and can help you lose weight

4. Is a Lauric acid, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal agent. This will help with killing yeast which is common in ADHD.

5. Can use on skin and hair too.

Enthusiastically yours,
