Fresh real food correlated with happiness

The USDA food pyramid says we need five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables daily.

Few Americans get even close to that--unless you count french fries and ketchup as two of your servings.

A study looking at eating and lifestyle factors of about 80,000 people in the UK, and found that people who eat more fresh fruits and vegetables are not only physically healthier, they're happier too.
