I blog to you sitting in the library doing nothing other than what I am trying to avoid here, procrastinating. School has consumed my life and while I have put blogging on hold for a while, I have not put my health on hold. No matter how busy we get and how much life consumes us, we can NEVER put our health in the back seat. 

With that being said my trouble studying has spurred my interest in what can possibly help me to focus on my work. By having an understanding of what healthy foods will help you concentrate it will only further prevent you from grabbing that bag of chips... instead try making a bag of trail mix!
