Eating Healthy and Your Mood

I know you thought that eating healthy amounts of fruits and vegetables are something you should do because your mother told you so! But new research is showing us that eating healthy is not just a means to physical health but a gateway into emotional well being. Now that is something to eat about!!

According to the New York Daily News Article, Saturday, August 10, 2013, eating more fruits and vegetables make you happy.

On days when people ate more fruits and vegetables, they reported feeling  calmer, happier and more energetic than they normally did,” said lead author Dr.  Tamlin Conner in a statement.

Furthermore, researchers point out that  eating more fruits and veggies actually predicted improvements in positive mood  the next day, suggesting that healthy eating has a direct impact on mental  well-being.

The study was published in the British Journal of Health  Psychology on January 24.

Meanwhile, like another study published  before it out of the University of Warwick in England, the Kiwi scientists said  that young people need to eat seven to eight servings of fruits and vegetables a  day to notice a meaningful, positive change.
