Too blessed to be stressed: Co-op and The National Student are here to help ease all of the pre-exam anxiety with some quick and easy recipes

With the stress of exams coming up, we'll soon be pushing ourselves to the limits and spending long hours in the library, trying to get that perfect exam score. Too often we forget or just don’t have time to get the food that our bodies (and brains!) desperately need in order to stay on top of things.

We’ve compiled a list of some fun and simple recipes you can make when studying for final exams. They won't have you in the kitchen forever, so you’ll be able to take a quick study break then get right back to the top of the class.

A little bit of chocolate can actually be really good for you! Dark chocolate helps to encourage the release of endorphins in the body, which make us happy, protect the brain and improve blood flow to it. All of those things really helps to improve focus, learning and memory. Also, what better way to use all of your leftover chocolate from Easter?
