If your weekly ‘big shop’ is of­ten de­railed by the pas­try-scented lure of the baked goods aisle, then an ap­ple a day might do more than just keep the doc­tor away. Ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in the jour­nal Psy­chol­ogy And Mar­ket­ing, peo­ple who ate an ap­ple be­fore shop­ping bought 28% more fruit and veg­eta­bles than those who ate a cookie, and 25% more than those who ate noth­ing. The re­searchers con­cluded that a healthy snack put the shop­pers in a health­ier mind­set, which steered them to­wards mak­ing bet­ter choices. And when the self-ser­vice check­out sends your stress hor­mone lev­els rock­et­ing, ex­tra fi­bre-rich fruit and veg can help with that too.
