Brain Food

Food ideas to keep you energetic and healthy.

This page is designed to inspire you with some food ideas that can help you stay energised and productive as you study. Fuelling your brain is the best way to maximise your learning when you study.

Fresh is best

Fresh food generally has the highest nutritional value. If you're super devoted to eating well, start a seasonal vegetable garden. Packaged foods often have high levels of sugar, preservatives, colourings and additives that the human body can't digest and process. This can lead to you feeling lethargic.


Greens are the best types of vegetables for you and you can make them taste really well if you're consuming them raw. Best greens include, kale, avocados, cucumbers, baby spinach, limes. All these go great in a smoothie or you can have a greens salad. Topped with a squeezed lime or apple cider vinegar.

Raw foods

Eating raw foods is one of the best ways to maximise your ability to absorb all the vitamins and minerals in each ingredient. Cooking your foods (although necessary for some ingredients) often cooks out the goodness.


Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get a huge dose of vitamins and minerals key for your brain. It also means you are consuming raw fruit and vegetables. Green smoothies are the best!


Balance is crucial to any diet, and therefore 'cheat foods' are allowed. Just avoid binging on these 'cheat foods'. However, I do know that every student has their comfort foods. If you love chocolate, dark chocolate is better.


Carbohydrates are not your enemy, they are natures energy foods - but once again, balance and moderation is key. When having pasta, avoid heavy and processed sauces. Try to make your own or toss the pasta through good olive oil. 

Super Foods

Super foods are your body and brains best fuel. Some super foods include, kiwi fruits, avocados, blueberries, tomatoes and broccoli.


Fresh fruit is a quick and easy snack that can perk you up and keep you going.
