Favorite Green Drink for ADD/ADHD
Handful of organic spinach
Handful of grapes
3 slices of organic pineapples
pinch of pure stevia extract
Fill distilled water over Vitamix blades and toss everything in. Mix for about 30-45 seconds. Makes two servings. This is a very delicious green drink! It has become a common request among friends and family.
Spinach is super source of  antioxidants (folate, beta carotene, lutein, etc) and the king of digestion (heals almost all stomach lesions). Don’t cook spinach or you will lose the oxalic acid healing properties.
Red grapes are high in antioxidant quercetin and resveratrol. Always try to purchase grapes with seeds. You will want to remove the seeds before you juice. Grapes that do not have seeds have been GMO which is a major no no for ADD/ADHD.
Pineapples contain one of the strongest protein digestive enzyme called bromelain. They are also loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals. They strengthen your bones because they are rich in manganese and they can help heal a damaged digestive tract.

Best Cereal For ADD/ADHD

A common question I’m asked is what do we eat for breakfast. Sometimes Charlie will eat raw organic oatmeal in unsweetened soy milk ( sweetened with 1/4 tsp pure stevia extract) with 2-3 scrambled eggs cooked in coconut oil. We completely stay away from sugar and butter. Sometimes he’ll sprinkle raw Himalayan salt or his favorite spices over his eggs. Lately we have been enjoying Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Original cereal for breakfast. Because the grains are sprouted it is very gentle on your digestive system and full of beneficial enzymes. It’s an organic cereal that doesn’t contain preservatives or anything artificial for that matter. It has 0 sugar and this cereal uses six sprouted grains and legumes making it a complete protein. My husband uses 1 cup of Ezekiel in unsweetened soy milk. He adds 1 full dropper of Vanilla Alcohol Free Stevia. It’s crazy delicious and sooo good for you! I prefer to mix my cereal in either unsweetened rice milk or almond milk. One bottle of liquid vanilla stevia (2 oz) will cost you $14.99. After using this product you will never consider sugar or artificial sweeteners again. Sometimes my husband will mix either raw carob, raw chocolate, organic cinnamon, or fruit (bananas, strawberries, blueberries, etc) in his cereal. Personally I do not put anything in my cereal except the stevia. The great thing about protein is how full it keeps you all day. Which is great for ADD/ADHD since they tend to get hungry quicker than most kids. Not only does protein help with focus but it helps to stabilize their blood sugar too. You should also check out Ezekiel sprouted breads. We LOVE their sesame bread! We went to our local grocery store and talked them into ordering this bread for us. You can definitely find it at your local health food stores that have a refrigerator selection. We order our cereal in bulk on http://www.amazon.com (Free shipping). This is a pricey cereal but well worth it. Price ranging anywhere from $5.25- $6.69 per box. You can order vanilla stevia at http://www.NuNaturals.com (Free shipping for orders over $35) Enthusiastically yours, Shirley Highers http://www.addnaturalremedy.com When the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, it may be that they are taking better care of it.
