What I’m Learning About De-Cluttering

ADDitudemag.com has such great articles. Check out this one: Don’t Organize It, Purge It: 10 Things to Throw Out Now

I’ve been working on my own home de-cluttering projects. Here’s a trick I’m using as I work on losing a bit more weight and trying to stave off my cookie cravings. I tell myself, as the urge hits me in my salivary glands: ‘time to work on my projects.’

I avert my attention from the pantry to the closet I’m organizing. It’s working. Not always, but it’s helping. Try it! Avert your attention!

What I’m Listening To

Ned is always up to something new and fun! Check out his new podcast, “Dr. Hallowell’s Wonderful World of Different.”

Listen here (and watch for an upcoming segment with yours truly as Ned’s guest).

What I’m Excited About

I get a lot of emails and guess what the #1 question I get is:

Where can I find a professional in my area who can help me?

I’ve researched the handful of ADHD directories online and decided that I’m going to develop the best one, ever. One that is user friendly. One that doesn’t frustrate you or make your eyes hurt. One that is comprehensive, where you can find therapists, doctors, coaches, educators, clinics, etc. One that is up to date, and much more.

We’re almost ready to launch, but if you are a professional or have a service or product and would like to be first in line or want to know more it, email me at support@addconsults.com.

ADHD-Friendly Recipe

Sheet-Pan Lemon Garlic Chicken
Serves 6


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 1 pound baby red potatoes, halved
  • 1 medium lemon, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, whisk the first 7 ingredients until blended. Pour 1/4 cup marinade into a large bowl or shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain chicken, discarding any remaining marinade in bowl.
  3. Place chicken in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan; add potatoes in a single layer. Drizzle reserved marinade over potatoes, top with lemon slices.
  4. Bake until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 170°-175° and potatoes are tender, 40-45 minutes. If desired, broil chicken 3-4 inches from heat until deep golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
