The snacks you choose to try to satisfy the stress munchies make a real difference. Caffeine, which is just so easy to grab, can make you jittery in the short-term and sometimes gives you a false sense of your own productivity. Junk food can cause energetic sugar highs that if you fatigued later. And large amounts of caffeine and junk food can interfere with your concentration, creativity, and optimism, not to mention your general health—all of which you need for the job search. So, instead of just grabbing more caffeine, salt, and sugar, consider a few of these snacks instead. They’ll help you fight off hunger, while giving you a satisfying crunch to help you deal with stress. Even better, they’re good for you! They’re pack with compounds that have been shown to improve your concentration, memory, creativity, mood, energy, and overall brain and physical performance so you can be at your best.
