    The best tasting trail mix ever. It's made up with white and dark chocolate chips, peanuts, almonds, cashews, dried cranberries and raisins. It is so yummy.

    Yum, thanks... I'll add it to the grocery list.

    Any snack with some protein content is good, because it will keep your blood glucose levels from rising or falling drastically. If your blood sugar levels are stable, concentration and focus seem to increase.

    I make my own trail mix too. I usually start with some pre packaged trail mix, and add a lot more cashews (my favorite nut), dried bananas (favorite dried fruit), white chocolate chips, and GUMMI BEARS.

    Its my study trail mix. I also love beef jerky while studying.

    I never snacked while I studied. I'm not coordinated enough to make note cards while stuffing my face so it would have been more of a distraction than anything. Maybe that is what kept me from getting the "nursing school spread" like many of my classmates, lol.

    Nice, good for you. I admit I put on a few pounds during nursing school. Hopefully, I can work it off after the NCLEX.

    Let's see when studying I tend to eat EVERYTHING in the fridge/freezer.

    During the school year I try to stock up on veggies and fruits.

    lol, I was studying for my NCLEX all day today. My wife was going to the store so I asked for fruit roll ups. When she came back I ate all ten in less than an hour. I came out with the box and she asked for one. I was like errr. yeeah about that.

    Sugar is good for the brain.
