As I settle back into student mode and spend an afternoon completing research and writing assignments, I find that I’ve also returned to snack mode. I’m not a junk food person, at least not often. I don’t want a bowl of chocolate (despite what my husband may think); when I’m trying to focus on my work I want a bowl something crunchy with a hint of salt nearby.
There have been numerous studies that tout crunchy snacks help with brain focus and reduction of stress so I know I’m not crazy (for this) or different.
My favorites include dried edamame, Japanese rice crackers, carrots, or a big bowl of warm and freshly-popped popcorn sprinkled with cayenne pepper and grated Parmesan.
What are some of your favourite crunch snacks?
I should admit that I have weaknesses too, mine include kettle corn or potato chips with french onion dip.
