Episode 117: Caffeine and Taste

Monday, November 26, 2018
We are full swing into the holiday season and we need a little caffeine to get us through. We discuss what happens in our bodies when we consume caffeine, how it affects our taste and perception of taste, and why we are so addicted to it! Plus, we talk about tiny rubber spatulas and Kerrygold butter.

  • Food Nerd Shoutout: Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway for dietitian Claudia Wilson's One Two Punch Gift Basket Giveaway and gave us great ideas of great One Two Punch food combos (salmon and rice, chicken and quinoa/brown rice, PB and banana, and spicy beef noodle soup). If you didn't get a chance to listen to that fun episode, you can listen here!
  • Let's Dig into the Kitchen Drawer: Winter likes her Tovolo Mini Spatulas (or Spatulart), because they are useful for getting sticky stuff (peanut butter, cookie butter, corn syrup, etc) out of smaller measuring cups and spoons or out of the original bottle or jar. Winter's rating: 4 out of 5 stars (because she really uses them only for a couple months out of the year for holiday baking).


  • Caffeine's chemical name is trimethylxanthine.
  • You can read all about those articles on caffeine here and here.


  • Introducing Interesting Ingredients: Kerrygold butter has higher butterfat and is banned in Wisconsin.

  • Winter loves Stove Top Stuffing, because that's what she grew up with, and her former roommates oyster stuffing. Sharon loves a good homemade stuffing such as cornbread dressing (with a little French bread).
  • We've covered a few Thanksgiving topics in the past, including the episodes Friendsgiving and Thanksgiving, holiday meats, and cranberries.
  • Canada has brought us many things, including Ruffles All Dressed Chips, hockey, poutin, Sarah McLachlan, and Barenaked Ladies, but they also have their own Thanksgiving, falling on the 2nd Monday in October. It's a perfect kickoff to Fall. Leafing or leaf peeping is perfect activity to do this.


  • Canada claims they have been doing Thanksgiving way before the Americans, because Martin Forbisher and his crew were giving thanks for a safe return to land (in the area of Newfoundland) in 1578. 
  • There are themes for thanks in Canada, such as in 1833: the cessation of cholera.

We are delighted to be with dietician Claudia Wilson RDN, the owner of All of Nutrition and author of the book One Two Punch, and dietician Marysa Cardwell RDN on this episode. Claudia talks about the philosophy behind her book--Burn, Balance, and Become--and how it totally can change how you eat. They also answer some of your questions in our Ask-A-Dietician segment, and we talk about strawberry hullers and quinoa (pronounced keen-wah).

  • Claudia Wilson is the author of the new book One Two Punch and she wrote it because of a need she saw--a bridge between being on a diet and moving on to eating more intuitively.
  • Marysa has been on the podcast on our episode about Recommended Daily Allowances.
  • Burn: When to eat, when you're hungry (open doors to an incinerator)


  • Balance: What to eat: A fist-sized portion of a carbohydrate and a fist-sized portion of a protein. There are choices for DAYS!
  • Become: The "practice" part (aka how to keep going)
  • There is a permission in the Become section. There is sensual satisfaction when eating.
  • How long does it take to "take"? It depends on how long they've been on a diet prior to starting the One Two Punch method. Claudia will start them on a trial of 24 hours.
  • If you "mess up", there's no wagon to fall off of. Claudia just suggests drinking a glass of water and waiting till the next time you get hungry.
  • When I reach food, what is going on? Are you bored? Anxious? Stressed out? Hungry? There are non-food soothers that can help soothe you, so you don't eat. 
  • Thank you for sending in question for our dietitians.
