7 Power Snacks to Fuel Your Next Study Session

Snacks are essential when planning a long study session. With a world of distractions at our fingertips (and a pretty bad procrastination habit!), the last thing we need is a grumbling stomach when we’re just trying to learn. The tricky part is staying away from those heavy, carb-loaded snacks that make you nod off. Try out these power snacks instead!

1. Veggies & Fruit

One of the most important parts about finding the perfect study snack is making sure you’re not eating something that will make you sleepy. You’re definitely safe with some veggies or fruit. In fact, these snacks are loaded with vitamins that actually help energize you.

2. Granola Bars

Granola bars are both healthy and filling. They’re a great way to fend off those distracting rumbles in your stomach when you’re trying to concentrate, but they also won’t weigh you down like snacking on carbs would.

 

3. Nuts

Nuts contain iron, protein, and B vitamins – all essential for keeping your mind sharp and energized! Why not munch on some almonds or trail mix?

 

4. Oatmeal

Just like a granola bar, some healthy oatmeal is perfect for getting rid of hunger without overdoing it. You can even throw some berries on top for an additional power-boosting treat!

 

5. Coffee

Need we say more? Coffee is the most popular caffeine fix when you’re seeking energy, and it also suppresses your appetite so that you won’t start craving that greasy pizza mid study-sesh.

 

 

6. Yogurt Parfait

The best part about a yogurt parfait? You get the benefits of both the fruit and granola! Plus, the yogurt adds some protein, which will help you stay focused on your studies.

 

7. Almond Butter or Peanut Butter

Protein in it’s most delicious form… yum! Try adding these tasty spreads on some fruit and veggies, or on some whole grain crackers.

    Hello reader,
    I totally agreed and love these snacks tips listed above. That being said, I will strongly recommend the granola bar, fruits and veggies, and of course a cup of coffee as well. Also, there are to go oatmeal, you can find those in any grocery store located in the breakfast sections. We as students needs good and healthy foodstuffs to keep us going through especially since it’s final weeks. Another healthy snack we need is the words of God. Pray at all times; right before you exams. I love what Jeremiah 3:15 says: “Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding.” Our shepherds are our amazing professors @CCU whom God has given unto us after His own heart. How awesome is our God. I hope this works out for everyone. I wish everybody the best of God’s blessings during these finals week. I would’ve said “luck”, but as children of God we are not lucky, but blessed beyond measure. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
