What's Your Favorite Brain food???

Posted

You know what I am talking about... up all night, trying to read words that just keep getting smaller and smaller, suddenly, your stomach screams "I NEED FOOD" :)

What is your favorite thing to feed it when it starts craving things when you are hitting the books?

My favorite is pizza, or good pretzels, puppy chow (chex cereal with chocolate and peanut butter covered in powdered sugar).

What do you crave??

I absolutely LOVE Heath Bars and BBQ Pizza!!!! Not EXACTLY health food.

BBQ pizza?? Sounds odd, whats on it?

I love Milky Ways too!

By the way Brandy, I forgot to mention that those milky ways helped me to get a "B" in every class (including A&P II)!! So, they are my best buddies for the next 3 years!! LOL!

I would have to say Heath bars or those dark chocolate Milky Ways!!

Late night study food...Chinese for sure!!

Channa :)

Taco Bell!!! Thank Goodness they're open late. :p

Otherwise, it's a dash to 7-11 for ANYTHING chocolate.

Snickers!! Enough said! :D

Well, it's not healthy at all, but a Blizzard from Dairy Queen is always my first choice. If I'm too lazy to drive to the DQ :rolleyes: , Papa John's delivery is always a phone call away. Food/ice cream from the DQ has always been my "comfort food." Probably because it was the only fast food restaurant in my home town!

Popcorn + the never ending coffee pot!!

Couldn't live without it!:D

Pepsi, Pepsi, and more Pepsi!:rolleyes:

On the healthy side I enjoy peanut butter and apples. On the unhealthy side gummy bears and sinckers or chocolate cover almonds.:)

In the past my favorite late-night study brain-food has been either mini Snickers or mini Butterfingers...MMMM LOVE those Butterfingers. :) And this past Spring before every exam I trotted off to the vending machine and had a Nestle Crunch. Didn't make below an 85 on any exam either. Now I'm a true believer in Nestle Crunch before EVERY exam!!!

However, this summer I've been trying to ease off the sweets a bit and have been munching out on Low-Fat Wheat Thins. And I've now found a taste for Slim Fast Energy Bars...the Rich Chewy Caramel and the Crispy Peanut Caramel really are not all that bad. Just not very big and I feel bad for eating more than one of them...have you priced these lately?? ASTRONOMICAL the price charged for these!!! :rolleyes:

Since I started school, I've put on "some" weight!! Just wondering if anyone has a diet that they follow while they are in school that would keep those fat cells shrunk? I know this is a problem for allot of students because there really isn't much time for exercising between classes, studying, and family (housework).

Thanks!!

On the question about the diet...

I've actually lost close to 60 lbs. since being back in school. I try to stock the fridge with fruit for study snacks and my kids and husband have had to adjust their habits too. But the biggest thing for me is that I MAKE the time to get on my treadmill 30 minutes a day. Believe it or not it has been a huge stress reliever for me. As time went on I found myself much more calm before A&P lab practicals, etc.

good luck,

Christine:cool:
