LET FREEDOM RING!


Feeling anxious? Your mood may actually change how your dinner tastes, making the bitter and salty flavours recede, according to new research.

Mood makes food taste different

This link between the chemical balance in your brain and your sense of taste could one day help doctors to treat depression.

..The work has also generated interest from flavour houses — companies that develop chemicals for the food and drink industry — who are interested, for example, in making foods taste just as sweet with half the amount of sugar. “

Theoretically there would be the possibility of enhancing your meal with drugs that affect brain chemicals so that things would taste better — you could have a ‘designer taste tablet’..”

The good ole brain chemicals..uh uh… serotonin , noradrenaline, tryptophan.

As for me, I’ll pass on the new “drug” they discover, and just take the chocolate thanks. smileyhelmut.jpg

    I always love the food here. I think I gained a couple of pounds just looking at all this food. I’ll not be doing this today though. It’s America’s birthday, but my diet will remain the same as most other days.

    Have a fabulous day and a very blessed Independence Day my friend. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

    I’ll have ribs with asparagus and corn on the cob, please.

    For dessert, I’ll have the red, white, and blue fruit parfait.

    Happy Independence Day, Angel!
