We all have food cravings. Some of us absolutely must have our daily dose of sweets, while others are helpless in avoiding the salty temptation of a bag of pretzels or salted peanuts.
This week I dedicate my workout playlist to one of my favorite senses: taste. While music is experienced with the sense of hearing, often it can entice many others, including your taste buds.
Next time you feel a food craving coming on, pop this mix on your iPod and hit the pavement for a little cardio. These songs may not always be about food in a literal sense (come on, what is music usually about!?), but they can make you think about your cravings subliminally. Face them head on while you burn some calories!
