About the event

Nutrition for Cognition: Supporting ADHD Through Food

With Lindsay Kolpitcke

May 26th, 5:30-6:30

$25

The brain consumes more calories than any other part of the body--roughly 20%--so eating brain-healthy foods isn’t only necessary for cognition, but imperative for those of us with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

What you put in your mouth provides all the raw materials for building the structure of your brain cells and keeps all the communication systems running coherently, so you can think, emote, learn, and remember. Simply put, food provides brain power.

Learn what foods, herbs, and nutrients best support the brain, why you do not want to skip breakfast (especially if you have ADHD), and how to incorporate those nutrients into your day.
