This September 24, 2014 article on the Medical News Today website talks about a recent study that seems to show that eating 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day could be beneficial to our mental health while also benefiting our physical health

  1. Hmm…suffer from mental health myself and was eating the ‘five a day’ prescription, which only overloaded my system with extra sugar from the fruits and some of the vegetables weren’t good for my metabolism. So, had to adjust with that idea.

    • I feel that common sense should be applied, since everyone has different needs and what works for one person may not work for everyone. I know for myself I don’t get anywhere near that many servings of fruits and veggies each day, but I do notice a difference in how I feel on days I don’t have any fruits or veggies compared to how I feel when I get 2 servings of veggies. The idea that it confirmed an observation I had made about myself, is more the reason I posted it, not to say that a one sized answer fits everyone’s needs.

      • Yeah, I understand and as a vegetarian, I do advocate fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy diet. It’s just like as you said, what is good for the goose, is not necessarily good for the gander, depending one one’s constitutional needs. Best wishes 🙂
