Foods to Fuel the Brain
Exams, for the majority of us, are stressful times. Busy schedules leave us chasing our tails, there’s no time to cook and the diet normally goes to pot. We tend to grab those quick fix stimulants – caffeine and sugar – which lead to peaks and troughs in energy, both mental and physical.
For concentration, focus and good memory we need to be calm and balanced without these dips in energy or mood. The following list of foods to fuel the brain will give you a brain boost to keep you focused and alert – far more than a double expresso, some wine gums and a bag of crisps.
