Eating for working out? Food suggestions?

I think this might go here better than the Home Cookng? D:

Not because it's the new year, but my school schedule is finally a bit lighter so I can get into the habit of working out more often.
The thing that prevented me from doing so is that the cardio I did, despite only being about 10-20 minutes, made me so fatigued afterwards that I got too lazy to do anything; but I still had enough energy to stay awake?

I've asked elsewhere and they said it's probably my diet. I don't typically anything specific before I work out.
Any suggestions? As a note, I'd like to avoid any form of protein powders (unless it's reallyyy advisable) and I'm lactose intolerant. I can eat yogurt, though. I would like to lose weight too, but that's not a main goal atm. Main goal is me getting off my butt and working out more than just yoga.

Thank you very much in advance.
