London, Jul 11 (ANI): Turns out, finding happiness is as simple as eating your greens!

A new study from the Warwick University suggested that compounds in fruit and vegetables help us have a sunnier outlook on life, the Daily Mail reported.

Researchers asked 12,500 Australians to keep food diaries for up to six years and answer questions on their state of mind.

Andrew Oswald, one of the study team, said that eating eight portions of fruit and vegetables a day could bring as much happiness as an unemployed person getting a job.

"Our study is consistent with the idea that real food is important for the mind," he said. (ANI)
