Healthy Snack

You ever felt so tired after just 20 mins of studying? Because same, sometimes a study session is missing the right snacking. For instance, overly processed food (Granola bars, protein bars or Ramen noodles) could contain large amounts of sodium, sugar and fats that could tire you up and wreck your mood to study.

Ideal studying snacks should contain nutrition that boosts up your mood, energize your brain and bring up the genius inside you. The secret sauce for this is snacks that are high in fibre, protein, and healthy fats. This combination of the three will makes your studying sesh a breeze.

Let's start with healthy protein snacks. Not every protein is for post-work, sometimes you need protein to solve for X.

1. Greek yoghurt

If you're aiming to get more protein in your diet, it's a good idea to switch from traditional yoghurt to Greek. Greek is strained, so it takes on a thicker consistency—and contains more protein and half the sugar compared to traditional yoghurts.

2. Hummus cup

Hummus has a healthy mix of protein (5 grams) and fibre (4 grams) in a quarter-cup serving.

3. Whole-grain protein bars

Remember we said not the mediocre protein bars, Nutrition bars are a no-brainer—they're a filling snack in a no-fuss, easy-to-carry package. But before you chow down, read the label carefully.

Now let's talk about healthy fats;

4. Tofu

Tofu is a complete plant protein and a good source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. A 100 g serving of firm tofu provides just over 4 g of fat.


The avocado is different from most other fruits. Whereas most fruits primarily contain carbs, avocados are loaded with fats. In fact, avocados are about 77% fat, by calories, making them even higher in fat than most animal foods.

6. organic string cheese

Organic string cheese is another snack with a low percentage of fats. Easy on the stomach and less crunchy.

And lastly, we finish our blog with fibres. Fibres are an important element in your daily snacking and studying. Fibres are widely used among athletes as they maintain the body stamina for more extended hours when conditioning and exercising.

7. Oatmeal

High in fibre and protein while being low in calories and fat isn't easy to find. That's why oatmeal is the gem of quick and easy foods. Not to mention it tastes good and comes in instant options, making it convenient for on the go students.

8. Fruits

Fruits are the best source of fibres, the best fruits to munch while studying are (Apples, Pears, Carrots, Grapes, Raspberries, Blueberries, Bananas, Strawberries).

9. Almonds

Very high in many nutrients, including healthy fats, vitamin E, manganese and magnesium. Sources: SnackNation, NAU Canada, Healthline, MedicalNewsToday.
