Studying just seems so much easier when you have something to chew on while doing it. Unfortunately, this can lead to a lot of bad snacking late at night, which we all know is terrible for our metabolisms. It’s not the best timing either, considering within a couple weeks we’ll be hitting the beach and the pool. Here are some healthy (and yummy) snack options that are great for exam week!
1. Peanut Butter Toast with Banana
Everyone loves peanut butter- it tastes heavenly and is full of good protein! If you cut up a banana on put it on top, it makes for a very filling snack that will help you power through a night of reviewing. It’s easy to make and fun to eat.
2. Hummus and Whole Wheat Crackers/Pretzels
If you’re craving something salty like pretzels, pair it with hummus! Like peanut butter, it’s filling and full of protein, which can help curb your hunger. It’ll give you the energy to pull an all-nighter and finish that essay.
3. Dark Chocolate covered Almonds
For those of you with a sweet tooth, this snack will more than satisfy you. Almonds not only boost energy, but also balance blood sugar. The sweet dark chocolate is not only delicious, but also a powerful source of antioxidants. This is the perfect guilt-free late night study snack!
4. Turkey and Cheese Roll Up
If you want something with a little more substance, buy your favorite type of cheese and roll it up with some turkey. It’s low in calories and high in protein, not to mention extremely tasty.
5. Oatmeal with Brown Sugar
Oatmeal is high in fiber and extremely low in calories. It tastes great on its own, but if you sprinkle some brown sugar on it, you’ll love the sweet twist! It’s very easy to make in the dorm room and cheap, so next time you’re craving a snack, try this one!
