Apple after BJJ Training - Good or Placebo?

I don't know much about nutrition in regards to eating after a bjj workout.  But after last training day I felt weak and a little light headed.  So this time I made sure to drink more water throughout the day and to bring an apple with me to eat after I was done training. In my opinion it made a difference.  As soon as I was done the class / training I ate it.  I felt WAY better soon after.  

Now don't get me wrong I still drink the protein while driving home to eat.  But I feel the apple was a nice quick healthy way to recover.  Could it be the natural fibers and sugar?   Or is it just a placebo effect? Or do I simply need better cardio?
