Food for Thought: a Finals grocery list (on a college budget)
April 19, 2012
Over the next few weeks, there will be plenty of posts in the Blogosphere about how to get ready for finals (e.g., study—duh!), but what about what to eat during this often crucial time period? Sometimes you are what you eat (if you’ve ever seen someone who looks like a Burger King Whopper, now you know why).
That’s why we’ve created a shopping list for you—so it’s one less thing to worry about over the course of these next few stressful weeks.
- Blueberries. Blueberries have a lot of health benefits, including that of brain health, aiding in the strengthening of memory. At Costco, an 18-oz container of blueberries is $10.
- Brita Water Pitcher. Unlike caffeine and energy drinks, water won’t make you crash post sugar rush, and it keeps you hydrated. This Brita “Space Saver” pitcher includes enough water for one person, and you can use it again and again ($19.49).
- Green tea. Studies have shown that green tea sharpens people’s minds. Get 40 bags of Lipton green tea for $4.
- Chocolate (yes, chocolate!). After much time studying, reward yourself with this treat. It’s actually not as bad as you think, as studies have shown chocolate can boost memory and problem-solving skills. Try Godiva Chocolatier Dark Chocolate with Almonds for $4. Bonus: Almonds are also good for brain power
