Eat tomatoes to be happy

Feeling down in the dumps? Add some tomatoes to your meals and turn that frown upside down. Researchers at the Tianjin Medical University discovered that eating tomatoes two to six times per week means you have nearly a 50 per cent less chance of being depressed. That’s because lycopene, the chemical that makes tomatoes red, is also a powerful antioxidant that helps battle depression. Not only that, but this super-antioxidant also helps keep you sun-safe by protecting your skin from UV rays.

Eat spinach to look young

It turns out Popeye was onto a winner with his love of spinach. This green leafy vegetable isn’t to everyone’s taste, but when you hear of the benefits it brings you might just change your mind. As well as being packed with fibre, iron and vitamins A, C and K, the combination of nutrients in spinach also increase the body’s natural rate of collagen production, which makes your skin look young and healthy. If looking young isn’t enough reason already, you’ll be happy to hear that spinach really does make you strong as well. According to scientists from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, the high nitrate content of spinach helps to tone muscles.

Eat lemon to detox

Whenever you’re feeling tired and lacking in energy, your body is telling you that you need to cleanse your system with a detox. Luckily there are plenty of foods out there to help you do this, and one of the best is lemon. Lemons are high in the antioxidant vitamin C, and also help to balance out the natural pH level of your body. For an added boost, enjoy a slice of lemon in some green tea. Researchers at Purdue University found that citrus fruits such as lemon help the body absorb the antioxidants in green tea three times as fast.

Eat nuts for a flat stomach

Everyone dreams of achieving the perfect flat stomach, and if you add nuts to your diet you’ll be one step closer to washboard abs. Nuts like cashews, almonds and peanuts are all high in monounsaturated fat, which helps your body absorb vitamins. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that diets that are high in monounsaturated fats lead to greater weight loss than those diets that attempt to cut out fat all together. Nuts are also high in fibre, and that means they help to regulate your digestive system and prevent bloating.

Eat blueberries to de-stress

We all know antioxidants are great for our body, and in a recent study into antioxidant content carried out by the US Department of Agriculture, blueberries came out on top when pitted against over 70 other foods. That high antioxidant content comes with a whole host of benefits, including the ability to help you de-stress. As well as all those antioxidants, the high vitamin C content of blueberries also helps calm you down, with researchers in Alabama finding that vitamin C can reduce stress levels.
