If you need a quick snack with a brain boost, you may want to reach for something with Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. A double blind study from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden found that symptoms of ADHD (inattentive type) improved in 35% of their participants after taking supplements with Omega 3/6 fatty acids. Quick snacks that contain these healthy fats are:
It only takes 5-10 minutes to boil eggs. (Did you know that you can even make them in your air fryer?) Keep in the fridge to grab and go!
You can buy without the shells so can grab a handful anytime. They are also a great addition to fruit or vegetable salads.
You can eat seaweed raw or dried. Dried seaweed snacks are readily available, or you can pick-up some sushi to get your fill of seaweed and other foods with healthy fats like salmon and avocado.
Soybeans in the raw are an efficient way to get Omega-3 proteins. Soy is available in many processed foods as alternatives to meat for vegetarians, however, it’s best to avoid processed foods and go for the natural option.
