In Sight, in MindPart of the problem Schreibeis Smith and her team see with traditional kitchens is the way they can keep food hidden and often forgotten. Large, deep refrigerators and opaque cabinets allow (usually preserved) food to sit or go bad, untouched, for months or even years. Instead, wellness-minded kitchens would prioritize fresh food storage that is easily visible.
