Gluten Free Study Snacks

As a university student (Did you know, “a” is appropriate since “university” begins with a “y” sound. Thanks Grammar Girl!) I find myself studying quite a lot. What a shocker! Not. Anyway… I like to have something to snack on during my hard core study sessions, but I don’t want to hit up the vending machines for junk food (even if it is gluten free) so I often pack a snack at home to carry with me when I’m on campus. A good study snack ought to have some good fat and protein for brain support. Whole grains, and fruits and vegetables are also wonderful options. Here is a list of a few of my favorites:

  • Granny Smith apple with crunchy peanut butter
  • Brown rice cakes with sunflower butter or peanut butter
  • Hard boiled eggs with hot chili sauce
  • Full fat yogurt with fruit and/or granola
  • Almonds
  • Stove popped popcorn with salt and/or cinnamon
  • Cheese and whole grain crackers or apple
  • Green smoothie made with yogurt or protein powder
  • Venison jerky or salami
  • Broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower with herbed plain, full fat yogurt
  • Tuna or salmon salad with whole grain crackers or brown rice cakes
  • High protein muffins [e.g. peanut butter banana (as in the picture) I made by following a recipe from Simply-Gluten Free]
  • High protein snack bar

What snacks do you find to help you with heavy duty brain work?

    1. I’d be happy to share the list on Stuffed Pepper. I don’t have many tips in terms of campus life as I don’t live as most college students. I live off campus, and attend university at a university affiliated community college campus that doesn’t have a real campus life/dorm life experience. However, I’d share what I could.
