I can’t make this stuff up!
A study using data from a five-year period (UK Household Longitudinal Study of 40,000 participants) found that increases in mental wellbeing and life satisfaction were linked to increases in the intake of fruits and vegetables. You often see recommendations for people to take a walk to improve their outlook and to reduce stress. The study’s authors estimated that adding one portion of fruits or veggies to your diet each day could have the same benefit as taking 7-8 extra walks a month. Imagine what would happen if you ate a few strawberries, blueberries or some celery as you walked!

A University of Warwick (UK) study found that a person’s mental health can be enhanced by consuming four extra portions of fruits and vegetables daily, so much so that it can lessen the psychological impact of life stressors such as divorce and unemployment. That’s incredible!
In another study (University of Otago, NZ ) 171 students between the ages of 18-25, were divided into three groups: Group 1 continued normal eating patterns; Group 2 received texts reminding them to eat more fruits and veggies, and Group 3 were given additional servings of fruits and vegetables for two weeks. Group 3, who were given the extra servings, enjoyed greater improvement in their mental wellbeing compared to the other two groups.
So, when it comes to feeling great and having a good attitude, fruits and veggies are King and Queen!
