Taste Bud – Brain Connection

June 20, 2013

McDonald’s started a new ad campaign a few weeks ago that probably appeals to a lot of people : “Think with your mouth.”  What does that really mean?

All of us have favorite foods whose flavor call to us for repeated yumminess on the tongue. No doubt about it. Whether it is that Big Mac, or a Snickers bar, or a favorite flavor of Baskin Robbins ice cream, there are some foods, when you put them into your mouth, you are rewarded with a little tingle of the taste buds.

Most of the time we want more and we don’t spend any time thinking about what we just put into our body.

McDonalds wants you to disconnect the brain. They want you to eat the stuff they serve there without thinking about it. With your brain. Which is where thinking occurs. Not your mouth. Your mouth WILL lead you astray.

So why is McDonalds trying to convince us NOT to think? To just eat? Just satisfy that urge?

You know why!!!! If you think about what is served at McDonalds you can NOT eat it. Simple as that.

So, please, think with your brain and chose other things that can tingle your taste buds. Savor the flavor of Slow Food-food you cook yourself and control not only the ingredients but the spices and flavors with the quality of the food you use.    How about a few teasers thanks to the Wild Ramp Foodies Facebook page?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Now, admit it, these look pretty yummy. All food in these recipes came from The Wild Ramp. That means we know where it was grown, how it was grown and if you buy it, you are supporting the local economy and good people!

Think with your brain….and use your heart.
