Food for Finals

The dreaded finals are upon us. Late night studying has commenced and that can lead to some poor eating habits. However, maintaining healthy eating will actually be more beneficial to your finals because your body and mind will be at their peak performance.

Here are some simple snack ideas for when you are studying late at night.

     Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberries – Blueberries are great for brain health and you need        your brain at its prime in order to remember everything for the test. Greek Yogurt is just      great for your body overall and provides you with much needed protein.

     Dark Chocolate – that is right, chocolate can help you with studying. Dark chocolate          helps stimulate blood flow to the brain which helps you concentrate on your work. But        of course, use it in moderation.

     Green Tea – unlike coffee, which can get you jittery if you have to much, green tea has        the amino acid L-theanine which will give you energy without putting you in overdrive.

     Water – It is important to stay hydrated throughout your study sessions. Doing so will          help blood flow to the brain and keep you from overheating, which can lead to                   headaches and lack of focus.

     Cheese Cucumber Sandwiches – You don’t have to worry about crumbs covering your      lap or your computer after you eat these, and it will help curb your carb cravings. The        crunchiness of the cucumber will balance out the richness of the fat and salt from the        cheese.

Though these snacks won’t be able to guarantee straight A’s on your finals, they will help you get one step closer.

As for working out, the RAC will have the same hours it has had all semester, so no worries about not being able to make it in.

The Group Fitness Classes will be changed slightly however, classes will still be offered but the times will be different.
