Make Healthy Food Taste Better By Making It Smell Like Junk Food, Scientists Say

Things that make food taste good: fat, sugar, salt. Things that make your body work good: kale. This is (more or less) the premise that led French researchers to build a device that makes healthy food taste better by adding junk food smells to it. (Although, finish that braised kale with a hit of acid, like sherry wine vinegar, and I promise you that you will experience an immediate tastiness boost. *Not science, but basically.)

Random sensory quotes

There are a lot of things that we crave, there are a lot of things that would make us perhaps more fulfilled in a sensory way that we just say no to.
