  • Primal students! What to munch while testing?

    Hey guys,
    There are tests ahead of me - 3-4 hour long tests.

    I gotta keep my senses up (because time is important) and need a "boost" in mid-test, when I get a down..
    What can I bring to a test?

    I find pemmican works nicely.

      Won't give a nutritive boost, but when I needed something to replace gum, I started chewing on those Tea Tree Toothpicks - they are a great little burst of mouth excitement, with no artificial sweeteners or scary chemicals, just essential oil. I highly recommend them!

        I would suggest sliced meat rolled around some cheese and cucumber, maybe with mustard if you like that. Nothing too crunchy, like carrots or nuts, to avoid distracting others. Bring a napkin, in case any juiciness gets on your desk.

        Hard-boiled(already peeled) or devilled eggs, are good, too. If you don't want to deal with the balancing of full-on devilled eggs, you can make 'the devil inside' eggs, where you don't overfill, and fold the two halves back together. Wrap in some cling wrap, or a napkin, and you're set.

        Cherry tomatoes: easy to pop in your mouth, no muss or fuss.

        Little balls of mozzarella, or meatballs, no sauce: same thing.

        Good luck on your tests!

          I would also bring a couple of hard-boiled eggs and a bag of macadamia nuts and dark chocolate. If you are higher carb, perhaps a banana, which also might help calm the nerves (it's a tradition for people fighting performance anxiety.) Good luck :-)

            I'm completely baffled by the need for a snack mid-test. Completely.
            Is it not possible to go 4 hours without food without hunger distracting you?

            Minty things, such as mint gum, breath mints, and mint toothpicks, have been studied and shown to increase mental alertness.
            Those would be my suggestions.

              I would bring caprese.

              Its just a slice of fresh mozzarella and a slice of tomato on top of a basil leaf. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top and crack some pepper on top of that.

              Make a small plate of that and brink a napkin. Enjoy!

                My winning forumla is fasting and caffeine, but YMMV.

                  Don't eat while you're taking a test. Just finish it early and take a nap.
