    Nice, good for you. I admit I put on a few pounds during nursing school. Hopefully, I can work it off after the NCLEX.
    Sorry about that. I was trying to make a funny that didn't come across as intended.

    No, it's so true. Nurses should try to set an example and live healthy. It's not always easy. Age plays a factor too. After next week hopefully, God willing, school, tests, and NCLEX will be over and I can get off my butt and burn some calories.

    have started ns yet, but my favorite snack food through all of my pre-req's was raw almonds from the health food store in my area. they have even replaced a meal or two when i was really busy.

    I really like Kashi granola bars (cept the peanut butter ones but thats just because I'm not a peanut butter fan outside of PB&J) They taste really good, aren't too dry, are all natural, and being prepackaged means I won't eat them all at once (as long as i don't sit down w/ my books and the whole box! lol)

    If I'm in a hurry and need a meal otw to school though I tend to grab poptarts. Bad, but the sugar rush tends to get me through the drive home after my night class on Mondays.

    PB sandwich, lots of crystal light mixed with water, cheese/WW crackers, Dried fruit, and granola bars! (plus some double chocolate dipped peanut clusters.....mmmmmmmmmm) (what? peanuts are protein too....)

    My current study snacks include: celery sticks with almond butter, Kashi Almond Flax bars, a few walnut halves, peaches/pears and I love Fage yogurt (great protein source without the sugars you find in most yogurts).

    i really like celery with peanut butter or cream cheese, apple slices with peanut butter, cereal with vanilla soy milk, carrot sticks or cucumber slices with fat free ranch.... anything that crunches basically. i think the crunch helps me wake up and focus.

    i try to stay away from heavy stuff that makes me sleepy... as a rule i stay away from taco bell when im studying, a taco will put me right to bed

    Asherah, where are you getting the Fage yogurt? Someone just told me about it the other day but I haven't seen it in the grocery store. Maybe I need to check next time I'm at Whole Foods.
    Thanks, Jules

    That's so easy to forget. I often choose fatty foods when studying so I don't have to stop and scrouge for food as often, but you are right resources are diverted from the brain to the tummy to try to digest that lard.

    I get "Rice Crackers with Nuts" from Costco. It's a mix of various flavors of rice crackers in interesting shapes, wasabi balls, and mixed nuts. I also like Quaker granola, with milk or without.
    I remember hearing somewhere that eating an apple will help you stay alert, better than caffeine, but I have no idea when/where I heard that. Has anyone else heard that?
