ADD ADHD and No Patience
I love mangoes but I rarely eat them. Peeling a mango is a hassle. Don’t we all want instant gratification with minimal effort?
Then I had a miraculous spectacular stupendous revelation. And now I know how to peel mangoes the right way.
How to peel a mango
Who told you you have to peel mangoes?
Don’t do it.
Just wash the fruit and take a bite out of it. Ummm, delicious!
I spit out the peel or else I swallow it without chewing it..
Actually, you can eat the peel; it has a good mangoey flavor, but it’s a little bitter.
What In The World Does This Have To Do With ADD ADHD, You May Be Asking?
First, it involves identifying a problem. In this case, two problems:
1) I don’t eat enough mangoes – because – 2) they’re too hard to peel.
But I don’t have to accept that this is just the way life is; No, it’s a problem.
Second, once we identify something as a problem, we can come up with a strategy.
I believe that every problem has a solution, or at least a strategy to help cope with it.
Our life can be better.
Start 2015 off right, enjoying your mangoes.
Bonus Tip O the Day :
It’s also fine to eat sweet potato skins- has vitamins and roughage, saves peeling and waste, and they’re not bitter.

Dr Mason’s Secret about ADD ADHD
I wear the same clothes more than 1 day in a row. This solves 2 problems:
1. It makes deciding what to wear easier.
2. Dirty clothes are more clearly dirty and clean clothes are more clearly clean. This eliminates the ambiguity of the in-between of clean and dirty.

any time we can reduce decisions we are ahead.

I SO agree – not necessarily about mangoes – but about solving problems. My husband and I do that ALL the time!!! In fact, I’m known as the problem solver in my family. When anyone needs a solution, they call me and I can generally come up with something or several somethings. I love solving problems.

Vicki – First, congratulations on getting diagnosed. Now you can start identifying problems and creating strategies, and your life can get better.
How do the frozen compared to the fresh? I’m a little suspicious.
Thank you for commenting. Good luck with the spitting.
The frozen is of course not as wonderful as fresh mangoes. But they are not bad, they have a firm texture and you can tell it’s a mango and not a peach.

vicki – that’s good but I’ll try to stick with the fresh, and keep hoping we can find the local peaches that you can tell aren’t cardboard.
as always, thanks for the comments
I had to smile at this! I only found out I have ADD two months ago. I’ve previously had the same problem with mangoes. In fact, several have spoiled in my refrigerator. They do take a special effort to peel, but I absolutely love them! Now I understand the problem with mango spoilage. Here’s another solution – they come frozen! Already peeled and cut into chunks! And they are pretty good also! Thanks for sharing. I will try the bite and spit method!
