Want to calm down?
Throw in: Rice, chicken, sausage, cheese, corn chips, and guacamole.
Why it works: Other than seeming like a bento box of comfort foods, it can actually tame tension because it is rich in healthy complex carbs. Taken in controlled quantities, this yummy selection helps bring you to a quiet and steady calm by stabilizing your body's insulin and sugar production.

Need to focus?
Throw in: Fish nuggets, avocado, celery whole wheat pita bread, and almond chocolate.
Why it works: All these contain omega-3 fatty acids that work well for your brain's cognitive functions! This lunch set will help you concentrate in class as well as improve your memory (so you won't forget those small details!). The iron in the fish is an added bonus to help regulate your energy throughout the busy day.

Require energy?
Throw in: Veggie sticks with dip, mixed nuts, fruit skewers, and granola.
Why it works: Mother Nature has her own healthy way of helping you bring sugar levels up while avoiding the undesirable energy crash later in the day. Foods containing natural sugars and fibers steadily bring up your sugar levels and sustain them for a longer time since it takes a while for your body to fully digest.
