GOING VIRTUAL: FUELING YOUR BODY BETWEEN ZOOM
Hi Stags! It is Foodie Friday AND Friday, November 2o - the day that many of us will be heading home for the holidays and going virtual. It is time to make those changes to get back into the groove of Zoom University. One thing that I am sure everyone is excited about is going home to some home-cooked meals and snacks! Snacking between classes is a good way to fuel your body throughout the day, so here are some tips for snacking in between Zoom!
Make sure you stay hydrated and energized!
Staying hydrated with a big glass of water throughout the day is important to keep your energy up and your mind refreshed and clear to enter your classes with an energized and positive mentality. While coffee may be your beverage of choice to get you through a day of Zoom classes, make sure to balance yourself out with some H2O! Fueling your body with hydration and food leads to a healthier mind, body, and spirit.
Grab a snack for in between classes
Just like staying hydrated, it is important that you’re fueling your body with snacks throughout the day. Food is your fuel! In addition to your 2-3 meals a day, it is always good to sneak in a few snacks especially between classes. Take the 15 minute break in between back-to-back classes to grab a banana, granola bar, or a bag of popcorn! Or even try these quick recipes that you make between classes!
Go for a subtle snack during lectures
If you can’t manage to sneak in a snack between Zoom classes, luckily you can eat in the pleasure of your own home during classes. If you don’t want to eat a whole meal during your class, go for a subtle snack such as fruit, chips, or small salty or sweet snacks!
In addition to food and hydration, make sure that you are taking care of your body during the rest of this virtual semester! Take a break from the screen once in a while and spend time outside or with friends and family. It is more important than ever to take care of yourself, so that you can succeed throughout the remainder of the semester!
