Snacks to Get You Through SAT Stress


On April 24th, many Clinton 11th grade students will take their first crack at the SAT. In the midst of all the test prep done in the coming weeks, you’re bound to crave something to crunch besides numbers. Here are five healthy snacks that’ll have you studying at your peak!

1. Berries

Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries… all are sweet, delicious and nourishing. They’re a great way to give your brain a boost.

2. Sea salt popcorn

When we think of popcorn, we usually think of that fat-loaded stuff served at movie theatres. But if you take out the butter, plain salted popcorn is actually a great, satisfying snack that won’t break your focus.

3. Dark chocolate

If you’re craving a candy bar, but don’t want something that’s gonna give you an artificial sugar crash during your study groove, dark chocolate squares (recommend 72% or darker) are filing and give you all the satisfaction of a Hershey’s, minus the negative effects.

4. Sunflower seeds/pumpkin seeds

Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds are both super delicious, quick snacks that will give your mind a surprisingly strong boost to keep you going strong as you study.

5. Walnuts

Walnuts are proven to help improve your mental alertness-aka the perfect bite you need if you’re trying to keep focused on the task at hand (in this case, test prep!)
