SEE Tip:  Want a snack while studying tonight?  Try something that will help, not hinder, your brain.  Almonds are a perfect source for brain power.  They have the right combination of protein, fiber, and healthy fats to increase your brain's ability to function and provide you with the energy needed to power through a study session.  Pair them with some water or tea (little to no caffeine as needed).

Get some samples of the energizing snack today starting at 6pm while supplies last at the MSE Q level from PEEPs!
