New research reported in the journal PLOS One shows that the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables go far beyond physical health. Young adults who were given just  2 extra cups of fruits and vegetables each day for 14 days experienced a boost in motivation and vitality.

This is the first study to show these results and the team recommend that large scale investigations are needed.

You could carry out your own experiment to see if upping your fruit and vegetable intake has a positive effect on your motivation!
