Eating more fruits and vegetables predict happiness and satisfaction with life
New research suggests that eating more fruits and vegetables can also increase levels of happiness later in life. In a study to be published in the American Journal of Public Health, researchers found that alterations in fruit and vegetable intake were predictive of later alterations in happiness and satisfaction with life. 
People who had been eating almost no fruits and vegetables and changed their diet to include fruits and vegetables per day experienced an increase in life satisfaction comparable to finding employment from an unemployed state. Their level of happiness increased incrementally for each extra daily portion of fruit and vegetables up to eight portions per day. The improvement in well-being was observed within 2 years of the study participants improving their diet.
The study examined food diaries of 12,385 randomly sampled Australian adults over 2007, 2009, and 2013 in the Household, Income, and Labour Dynamics in Australia Survey.
