In a recent survey of almost 14,000 people by the University of Warwick in England, those with the highest levels of mental well-being ate the most fruits and vegetables. Volunteers were asked about their diet, confidence, stress, social support, optimism, and mental clarity. The happiest participants – about one in three – ate five or more servings of produce daily; 31 percent ate three or four servings and 7 percent ate less than one serving.
The hypothesis? Produce-packed diets may help battle inflammation and chronic disease, both of which increase the risk of depression. Other research has found a correlation between lower moods and fast food, processed meats, and sugary desserts.
