Did you know that essential fatty acids (EFAs) can help your child with focus and attention? Now that school is heading back in, it will be all that more important for your child to focus and have good attention during the school hours. An excellent way to accomplish this is by giving your child sources of EFAs in the morning with their breakfast and also packed in their lunches at school.
What are sources of EFAs?
Salmon, Herring and Mackerel fish are an excellent source, and for this reason, I recommend that clients give their children the Botanica Omegalicious fish oil. They are delicious, naturally flavoured Tangerine, Coconut Pineapple, Mango Peach and Key Lime and taste more like a dessert than a fish supplement. You can add this oil to your child’s yogurt, put it on their pancakes or just simply serve it to them off a spoon.
Other sources are: hemp seeds, flax seeds, walnuts, almonds, broccoli, spinach, olive oil, whole grains and eggs so add these foods to lunches where you can.
Our brains are 80% fat, and so it’s important for all of us to be having an EFA supplement daily. Not only that - EFAs have been shown to improve eye health so all the better for your child’s eyesight as they are now focusing on their school work.
If you are using the Botanica Omegalicious Fish Oil, for children 1-2 tsp/day, teenagers 1 tbsp/day and adults 2 tbsp/day would be recommended. In Calgary this brand of oils can be found at most health food stores, especially Community Natural Foods, Planet Organic, Blush Lane and Amaranth Whole Foods.

I recently ran a workshop with Adrianne from Ufiit.com. This was called a magical weight loss journey. My methods are of course more on the meditation and visualize line.
We discussed the different reasons that we eat and emotions that go along with it. We
cast some magic circles and shared a lot.
Adrianne discussed different body types and why certain exercises are better than others.
It was very interactive and fun. At the end of the workshop I showed Adrianne my new find, a box of organic fudge bars with only 90 calories a bar (they taste great).
I asked him if they were OK? He responded with "Did you earn it?".
My mind went of course I paid for them. LOL. He said " Did you earn them ?" suddenly the penny dropped. Adrianne was talking earlier about our base caloric needs. So just being alive lying in bed takes calories. Everything over that you have to earn.
After I stopped laughing at myself. I realized that this was a great mind shift for me.
So now I actually think I want french fries tonight. I had better go for a walk.
Happy bodies means happier lives.
