Studying can be a tiresome activity and it’s important to acknowledge that by fueling yourself up with healthy treats throughout any cram session. While we all love our carbs — or at least I do — it’s best to treat yourself to healthy fats or protein to fill up for longer. To make sure you’re nourishing your body as well as your mind, check out these fall-flavored study snacks.
