It’s important to replenish the fluid in your body after a workout and eating something with berries in it is a great way to do just that! Berries contain high amounts of water, as well as good-for-you carbohydrates that will give you an energy boost after strenuous exercise. Additionally, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries all contain powerful antioxidants called polyphenols that help to reduce muscle pain.

This salsa recipe is delicious eaten on its own or served atop grilled chicken or fish, if you want to add an extra hit of protein to your meal!
