Peppermint tea and a banana!!

Make sure you eat well!!!

minion with bananas

I always felt nervous when heading into an exam and could never settle my stomach.

If I ate too much food I would feel sick, but then if I ate nothing I would be starving. Whatever I put in my stomach made me feel anxious.

Before every exam and even interview I stick with my foolproof meal - peppermint tea and one banana.

It's a calming combination that helps get you through a few hours without your stomach rumbling or feel like it'll blow.
