By bzbeth 20 Nov 2019

All that revising and exam prep is bound to work up an appetite, and you need to keep your mind sharp!

When you're feeling stressed during exam season, it can lead to binging on unhealthy comfort zone but you need to avoid those unhealthy choices if you want to perform well in your studies.

These healthy study snacks will power your body and mind rather than make you feel sluggish and unable to concentrate:

1. Peanut Butter and Banana Energy Bars

With only 5 ingredients and 30 minutes to bake, you don't have many excuses NOT to give this recipe a try. 

2. Frozen Yoghurt-Covered Berries

Don't opt for a tub of Häagen-Dazs ice cream when you're stressing out and instead make these frozen yoghurt berries.

3. Avocado on Toast

Yes, you've seen this all over Instagram and at every hipster eatery in London, but now give it a go yourself for breakfast or brunch to keep yourself going. There are loads of things to eat with it too i.e. poached egg, plum tomatoes, sausages etc. 

4. Protein Muffins

Intended for breakfast but can be eaten any time of day. Packed with fruit and protein powder, one of these will give you the boost you need!

5. Green Smoothie

It's important to eat your veggies and the easiest way to do that is by drinking them. It actually tastes good, don't worry, it doesn't taste like you're drinking a cup of spinach.

6. Roasted Chickpeas

Put the crisps down and pick the chickpeas up! This recipe offers a perfect (and healthy) crispy replacement.

7. Mini Stuffed Peppers

This 3-ingredient recipe is simple and perfect to satisfy hunger when you want something quick and easy. They'll fill you up more than you think so that you can stay focused on your studying.

Happy snacking!
