Trick your taste buds

"Taste buds are malleable little fellas. When they can’t be with the foods they love, they learn to love the foods they’re with.

Make a short-term commitment to choosing more wholesome closer-to-nature foods with less added salt, sugar, saturated fat, and trans fat. Within weeks, you’ll start to prefer these now-familiar foods."

—David Katz, MD, director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center
