And reds and yellows and all the other colours of the rainbow found in nutrient-rich veggies and fruit, too, of course! Last year, researchers from the University of Leeds in the UK found that consuming more fruit and vegetables improves your mental wellbeing.
Their findings indicate that eating just one extra portion of fruits and vegetables a day could have an equivalent effect on mental well-being to about eight extra days of walking a month for at least 10 minutes at a time.
One of the authors of the study, Dr Neel Ocean, said that while further work is needed to demonstrate cause and effect. The results are clear: people who do eat more fruit and vegetables report a higher level of mental wellbeing and life satisfaction than those who eat less.
