When looking to get some energy back into the body, snacks high in fiber are a good start. One of the best fiber foods are berries such as strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries.

This snack can go with a lot of other foods like yogurt or a small salad, which will give the body some protein and healthy fat. They are also loaded with antioxidants that protect cells, improve blood sugar, and reduce disease.
