Brain Boosting All-Natural Power Smoothie
Pre exam nerves can leave you feeling more nauseous than hungry, yet it’s crucial you have at least something for breakfast on exam day, to provide a gentle energy release for your brain to access throughout the morning. If like many however, the thought of sitting down to a hearty breakfast is just too much to stomach, why not try this simple smoothie instead, packed with brain-boosting ingredients. Smoothies are a great pre-exam breakfast. And because they’re blended, they’re easy to drink and easy to digest too, and usually tolerated by even the most anxious gut.
