Trade Out Junk Food for Happiness By Reducing ADHD Symptoms

Traded Out Junk Food for Happiness by Reducing ADHD Symptoms

My kids used to eat sugary cereal for breakfast, bad-for-you lunches (AKA lunchables), processed foods, and waaayyyyy too much candy.

When I tell people that, they sometimes can’t believe it! 

They assume I’ve always been interested in health and nutrition. In reality, though, my background is in business and accounting. I didn’t become interested in health and nutrition until my concerns over my son’s health grew so much that I could no longer ignore them. 

Back then, as my son’s tantrums became more and more common, I remember waking up and dreading what the day might bring, walking on eggshells in my own home, and wondering when the next meltdown was going to come. 

It even got to the point where I resented my own child. 

I remember when I finally said that outloud to my husband. “I don’t even like him anymore.” As I said the words (and the mom guilt hovered down on me), I knew something had to change. 

That’s when I started learning how our food can affect our behavior. The more I learned, the more our habits changed.  

Now, my children are healthy and happy! We can go out to dinner and enjoy a nice meal together. We have peace and joy. I wake up in the morning and actually look forward to the day. 

My home is the calm place I always wanted it to be. 

Ten years ago, I didn’t think that was possible. Now, as I’ve watched not only my family, but also soooo many of my clients’ families find peace and happiness, I know it’s not only possible. It’s also do-able for even the busiest of families.

Do my kids sometimes miss the junk food? Sure. But none of us would trade what we have today for what we had back then!  

And I want to tell you a secret….there are really delicious, sometimes even healthy, alternatives to just about every guilty pleasure out there. 

Though you might miss some of the foods you give up, you won’t miss the fits, the frustration, or the fear of what tomorrow might bring. The tradeoff is well worth it!
