- Jul 26, '12 by dbowie80I pack my lunch/snacks...that way i know what I'm eating & my portions are controlled. I also drink plenty of water. I was working out for an hour 3-4xs/week, but now my goal is 30 min qd. Not only does it keep me from having to buy new scrub pants, but also alleviates stress!
- Jul 27, '12 by sauconyrunnerA nice variety in your diet is always good. I spent one summer in school (between Jr and Senior yr) working 2 full time jobs. Somehow I ended up eating mostly Harris Teeters German choc cake and potato chips. I gained no weight, but when I went in for a physical, I got an emergency call from the physician....Apparently my diet....led me to severe anemia.
Luckily some tablets, orange juice and real food seemed to cure it.
- Jul 27, '12 by JennybrieI love salmon and some websites claim that it increases brain function. I like it because it's filling but doesn't make me want to sleep 20 minutes after I eat it. I also crave cheesecake around finals and give in after the last one is finished. Chocolate makes everything better and I usually find an excuse to share a bag of peanut butter M&Ms for a mid afternoon snack.
Top 10 Brain Foods
- Jul 27, '12 by staceymNice link. I'm glad to see that I enjoy all foods listed...just need to eat them more frequently. My goal right now is to slowly stop choosing a meal based on what "sounds" good and switch to what's good "for me". I can still enjoy the foods I love but choose the healthier options most.
- Jul 28, '12 by AndrewMQuote from tewdlesI definitely agree, most days I end up eating salads with kale in it, with peppers, celery, pork, mushrooms, cucumbers, lettuce, almonds and an assortment of other veggies.Brain food = kale
I will be starting the BScN program at my local college next month and I decided that it's about time I eat healthy and get fit. I've been eating rather healthy meals each day and have been doing cardio an hour a day. (I will soon introduce weight lifting next week)
I've never felt better and I have notice a change in the amount of information I can retain and my overall well being. Definitely is a great idea to eat healthy and to stay healthy especially while in nursing school.
