As I prepare for nursing school in the fall, I am also looking at how I can improve my diet, and to not fall into fattening convenience foods. I have read to avoid sugars, fats, things like turkey cold cuts, and so on. Does anyone have tried and true healthy foods and snacks that helped them through? On a side note, I found an interesting recipe on Pinterest that was chick peas soaked in vinegar and a little salt, and then roasted. I am someone that finds it helpful to munch during lectures. Helps me concentrate. So the chick pea thing sounded perfect.
