Banana Bread Muffins with Fresh Sage

Tuesday, February 26, 2013
So much of the reading I have done about satisfaction at the end of a meal points to engaging our minds and body in the process of eating. This includes our taste-buds. Studies have show that if you activate more areas in your mouth at a meal, you will end up with a more complete experience and feel more satisfied as a result.

What I have been experimenting with is creating recipes that are both savory and sweet. Those tastes activate different parts of our mouth so we can feel more requited after eating. I want to find the solution to the "bag of potato chips" phenomenon. Because potato chips are only salty you can never eat enough. You just want more! And then, suddenly, you realize you have eaten a whole bag of potato chips and still want more!

My family is really enjoying the combinations of flavors I have been creating. This Banana Muffin with Fresh Sage recipe is a good example. All would say they are tasty and flavorful.  Pretty darn satisfying too! For 200 calories they are a good addition to a salad at lunch or can be a great snack at mid-morning or afternoon. Try them out and see what you think.
