Scents and Our Diet~

Have an appetite for fun and many chances to win great prizes, then join us for the "WIN-Spring Fling." Feel free to contact me for more information.

~Do you have picky eaters at your dinner table?

Try adding foods that have scents known to stimulate our tastebuds.

Ginger, oregano, fennel, lemon, nutmeg, orange and garlic are all great scents to promote better interest.

Ginger, lemon or orange sprinkled on any green vegetable will entice your younger ones to dive in.

You may have elderly members in your home who have less interest in mealtime due to a loss of appetite.

A little nutmeg, fennel, or garlic will do wonders to increase their intake.

Essential oils are a great way to add scent to your foods. They are healthy, have wonderful medicinal qualities, and safe.

Remember that oils are very strong, so a little goes a long way.

Licorice is a great tea additive...really perks the cup!

Have a delicious spring!

Thanks for this great info! I always knew scent was an integral component of taste. You have also taught me how much fresh herbs differ from the grocery bottled stuff in enhancing aroma and flavor. But I didn't know they could be used to influence appetite. This is good news to use.

Thanks Vanessa,

Scent can be a powerful force in our eating habits.

And the bottled herbs and spices from the supermarket shelf...well, just don't go there!

Looking forward to watching your blog grow...keep me updated.

Happy Spring!
