5 Healthy Studying Snacks
Here are five tips to keep your snacking in check:
1. Go Nuts!
Not only will nuts keep you full, but they will satisfy a salty craving. Nuts are high in protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, which will help your brain survive the long hours of the night. Almonds, walnuts, or pistachios are always a favorite.
2. Carrots n' hummus
Are you craving a creamy dip with Tostitos tortilla chips? Turn to this combination that will keep you satisfied much longer. Hummus is loaded with fiber, helping you stay fuller longer. In addition, carrots are great for your vision, and are a great source of Vitamin A.
Don’t mistake your dehydration with hunger! Staying hydrated should be a major focus when studying for hours on end. Try alternating caffeine-ridden drinks with glasses of water to keep your hydration in check.
Berries provide a sugar rush, but with very few calories. Choose blueberries for a healthy alternative to candy, and in return you’ll get a hit of Vitamin C, fiber and Vitamin E. Did I mention blueberries are also known for being a brain-booster? Study away!
5. Greek Yogurt
Instead of reaching for a pint of Ben and Jerry’s, try this creamy alternative. Greek yogurt is not only full of probiotics, but it also packs double the amount of protein in regular yogurt.
