As I've been sitting home each day stuck in quarantine, I've been passing my days snacking away, trying to remain calm amidst all of the chaos that has been imposed on our world. Although this is a time of uncertainty, and one that should very well have no rules or boundaries, I'm tired of binging on snacks that leave me feeling fatigued and guilty. Therefore, I decided to compile a list of my top five prebiotic fiber snacks. 

Prebiotic fiber is known to boost your mood through food from a neurotransmitter called serotonin. Serotonin is responsible for giving us feelings of pleasure and fulfillment. Serotonin is best known as a neurotransmitter critical for central nervous system development and function. 95% of the body's serotonin is produced in the intestine or gut. We can enhance our positive emotions simply by consuming nourishing and nutritious foods. 

These healthy, low-sugar snacks will fuel your gut, boost your mood and leave you feeling satisfied for hours.
