A new study has associated eating bright yellow foods with happiness. A study in the U.K. interviewed about 1,000 participants about food consumption and emotions. Bright yellow foods were found to evoke the most happiness with foods such as omelettes topping the list. This is thought to be because the color yellow may remind us of the warmth of sunshine and children’s toys. Red foods were found to evoke the second most amount of happiness with blue foods coming last on the list.
- Research shows that people experience positive reactions to the color yellow because it reminds them of sunshine and children’s toys.
- Yellow foods that made study participants feel most cheerful included omelettes, macaroni and cheese, and pancakes.
- Yellow vegetables such as corn, golden beets, and pumpkin are filled with vitamins and antioxidants.
