Yoghurt pot with fruit

Yoghurt pot

What’s your go-to snack? I usually reach for a banana or an apple when I’m peckish in between meals.

I am starting to feel a bit bored with it though which then leads me to spend on a snack that’s less nutritious and satisfying. As far as procrastination goes, I try and make sure it’s a snack that’s already prepared so that I don’t use “snack preparation” to delay thesis-writing.

I’ve compiled a bit of a list here after collecting suggestions from other students. 

  • Nuts and dried fruit - make your own trail mix; easy and convenient.
  • Protein or energy balls - a great filling snack and lots of easy recipes online.
  • Apples and peanut butter - I haven’t tried this, but it sounds really sweet and yummy, perfect when in need of a sugar hit.
  • Tuna - easy and if canned, can keep in your study drawer for a while. Make sure you look up brands that follow sustainable practices.
  • Greek yoghurt and bananas - sweet and filling but also packed with protein and potassium which is good for brain work.
  • Dark chocolate-covered nuts - yes, treat yourself!
  • Reheatable egg muffins - they’re egg cups that you can prepare the day before and can be easily microwaved in the office kitchen. Free of carbs and full of nutrition, they are also not expensive to make. 
  • Smoked salmon on whole-grain crackers - add an avo if you’d like a heavier snack.
  • Hard-boiled eggs - protein!
  • Brie and grapes - yummy, indulging snack.
  • Chia pudding - you can make several variations of this using fruit or cocoa powder
  • Cheesy spinach quinoa cups

What else could you suggest that I can add to my list?
