With the weather being cold and miserable, it's only natural that we start to feel a bit blue. Thankfully, however, there is a way to make yourself feel a bit happier when you're not feeling your best: just eating one of these foods.

A study from The Happy Egg found people tend to go for brightly coloured foods when they're trying to cheer themselves up, with 70% of those surveyed revealing that they associate the colour yellow with joy.

Here were the five types of food that people found made them happiest:

5. Lemon cakes – 52%

4. Poached eggs – 53%

3. Pancakes – 54% 

2. Macaroni cheese – 56%

1. Omelettes – 61%

So the next time you're feeling down, just make yourself a big ol' omelette. The yellower the better.
