Okay, we know it seems like just yesterday that you were sitting at the dinner table and you were being told to "eat your vegetables, they're good for you," right? Well it turns out, science is starting to prove that friendly bit of advice right!
In the article, Fruit and Vegetables Aren't Only Good for a Healthy Body- They Protect Your Mind Too, published on MedicalXPress.com, researchers explore the link between nutrition, dietary patterns and mental health. Science proves that eating a diet comprised of those vegetables (yep, the ones mom pushed at the dinner table), along with fruits, legumes and nuts, is associated with preventing the onset of depression.

Participants were asked to fill out a questionnare at the start of the project and then after 10 years.
The Findings.....Plant Based Foods = Good Mental Health!
