SNACK ATTACK 🥕🥑🍑🥨🧀
If you know me, you know that I am ALWAYS snacking. Especially when I’m studying a lot, because let’s be honest, our brains need fuel! Here’s the thing though - snacking on chips, cookies, and other foods that aren’t nutrient-dense aren’t going to help you. The salt and oil will make you eat way more than you thought, and leave you feeling bloated AF. Speaking from experience here 🙋♀️🤷♀️(aka me yesterday snacking on sour punch straws and pie). For the most part though, I love eating whole, nutrient dense foods that keep my belly and my brain happy. Here are some of my faves:
1. Baby carrots + hummus - I’ve been loving this horseradish one lately! I also love roasted garlic and the olive hummus from @traderjoes
2. Fruit! Berries when cheap/in season, and cuties (ya I know they are GMOs but 🤷♀️)
3. Kombucha! When I want something to sip on that isn’t water, I love drinking some BOOCH - I probably drink 1/3 - 1/2 bottle when I do, and I don’t have I️t every day, but i love I️t when I do. For anyone struggling with GI/digestive issues, boost, I️t acne/eczema, TRY kombucha! Gut health shows up in different ways, so this can help a lot of things. (Although I’m not a doctor and never will be so please go see an actual doctor if you think you need to)
4. To satisfy my sweet tooth, @emmysorganics
are my absolute FAVES. The perfect blend of sweet and satisfying. My favorite Emmy’s are the Vanilla and Lemon Ginger, and my fave Square Bars are Cookie Dough, Nuts and Sea Salt, and Chocolate Cherry (as usual, link in my bio is 30% off!). Are you the kind of person that forgets to each when you’re working? (ya lol I have never in my life been that person) Or are you constantly munching? Let me know your fave study snacks in the comments below!
