Discover Songs and Top Brain Food Snacks for the Library

Here’s a list of my favourite ‘brain food’ snacks you can enjoy in the library (linked to some of my favourite songs, get discovering!)- because nobody wants to be that person crunching a packet of monster munch whilst pretending that the smell isn’t actually travelling across the whole floor. Luckily, these foods are known to boost brain functions, so it’s a win-win!

You’re losing your Vitamin C

As CAN’s song goes, you might well be losing your Vitamin C (it’s a fab song, check it out!). To top up your levels, grab a few oranges from Lidl. I usually buy the easy-peelers, they only cost a couple of pounds but taste lovely and can stop your stomach from growling when you’re debating on buying one of those expensive paninis from the café.

It’s all over now, baby blue

No need to feel blue and hungry in the library anymore – buy some frozen berries from Lidl and defrost them in your fridge overnight. It’s way cheaper than buying them in fresh and they still taste just as good! Blueberries have been known to prevent memory loss, and they have the highest antioxidant capacity in them compared to other fruit! Pretty impressive for such a small berry, right?

Can I have another piece of chocolate cake?

Well, technically, no you can’t. But, you can have some dark chocolate instead. The bitter alternative is known to be high in antioxidants and boost your endorphins – perfect for a little boost in the evening when your essay has stopped making sense and you need a little sugar rush.

I hope that these brainfoods will keep you going throughout exam season without taking over your student finance loan – best of luck with your revision! 🙂
