Brain Energy

A balanced diet is key to maintaining good physical and mental health.  Keeping blood sugar levels even throughout the day keeps us cognitively sharp.

Here’s one of my favorite recipes for snack food–basically a homemade Clif Bar. It’s perfect for dissertating because it contains a good mix of sugar, protein, and fat. It will fill you up and give you a little sugar boost right away. The recipe calls for raisins, but I think it would also work with dark chocolate chips. I’ve also switched out the peanut butter and the peanuts for different kinds of nut butters and nuts just for fun. Though I make energy bars for snacks, they also work for breakfast.
