Study Snacks

I am a frequent snacker. When I am tired, I am hungry. When I am studying, I am hungry. When I am hungry, I am hungry. It’s endless and unfortunate. Having a snack while studying always keeps me motivated and energized. I searched pinterest for the BEST snacks that I could find. Here are 3 AMAZING study snacks…..

2) Avocado & Egg Sandwich! Avocado is just so tasty and healthy so I really enjoyed this snack. Eggs= brain food! Protein packed and delicious! You really can’t go wrong with this one. I love to substitute eggs for egg whites and sprinkle some fresh ground pepper on top as well.
