Top 10: Study snacks

1. Nuts

Pistachios, almonds, walnuts, and peanuts contain a high amount of crucial fatty acids to help the students’ endeavors. Also, they are a good source of protein and are easy to carry, containing unsaturated fats or the “cool” fat, which is a good calorie intake choice.

2. Coffee and tea 

Staying awake for late night study sessions can be hard without the proper boost. Coffee will act as a stimulant, boosting the ability to retain one’s studies. While tea affects problem solving and focus positively, overuse  of  either  will  have  negative side effects. Drink accordingly.

3. Fish 

Particularly salmon and albacore tuna which both have high amounts of Omega-3 fatty acid.

4. Energy drinks 

Drinking these on a regular basis is not a great idea, but twice the amount of caffeine, and high amounts of vitamins B6,B3,B2, and B12 will keep you up during long studies.

5. Cocaine (Energy Drink) 

Worthy of its own mention, forced to change it’s name in 2007 by the FDA. The drink cocaine has three times the amount of taurine of a monster. Need to stay up for 17 hours studying, this bad boy is for you.

6. Berries

Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cranberries are always beneficial. They are high in antioxidants, which helps blood flow by lowering toxin levels in the bloodstream. They are easily accessible at your local grocery store.

7. Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate only, no milk chocolate will do, but higher amounts of concentrations are ideal. Increasing blood flow to the brain with increasing awareness and clarity.

8. Raw vegetables 

Cooking vegetables often takes out the nutrients the body and brain needs the most. For the better grades, eat your vegetables which provide a student necessary nutrients to increase productivity and help during those study hours.

9. Water 

Hydration is necessary to keep one’s brain focused and in tip-top shape. Whether from the tap or from the bottle, water is your best friend when trying to remember those difficult equations.

10. Comfort foods 

Nothing beats some good old comfort food. Studying can be a drag, so anything fried and high in calories will make it a bit more bearable when burning the midnight oil during the next two weeks.
