Blueberries

Blueberries are a sweet and handy food that, by some accounts, can give you a nearly immediate burst of pure energy. If the subject matter you're studying is particularly challenging, this juicy snack can help increase your brain's processing capacity [source: Online University]. In addition, blueberries provide your body with the nutrients necessary to move quickly, smoothly and efficiently -- like when you're taking notes at a feverish pace, while still managing to wink at that special someone across the room [source: Online University]. The antioxidants found in blueberries are also a plus since you want to keep that brain humming for years to come.
