Chris you are right about not shopping on an empty stomach. It's weird, now even the hardware store sells chips by the checkout counter. Not small bags either, twice the size of 10 years ago. They say "buy me...buy me...buy me..." I wonder if they put heroin in them? It's not on the ingredient list. :-)

I do have trends - eat one thing over and over until I'm tired of it, then find something else.

I made an apple pie yesterday after watching those videos on sugar. Now it seems too sweet.
I usually use 3/4 the sugar of the recipe, might have to reduce to 1/2.

Oh, Om addicted to potato salad. I could eat that until the cows come home.

I don't think I'm addicted to any one food, but I do eat too much.  Especially ice cream.

I love chocolate, but don't eat an excessive amount.  I love pizza, but don't eat much, mostly because it's so expensive.

I used to love potato chips, but now they taste bland, so I almost never eat them.  Even when I loved them, I didn't eat too many because the price hurt my pocketbook.

I love Cashews, Pistachios, Black walnuts, Brazil nuts, and Pine nuts, but eat very few because of the price.

Most of all, I love mashed potatoes, with brown gravy, but don't eat many of them for a different reason.  I'm lazy about preparing them.

Never go shopping on an empty stomach! And take a shopping list.

You're not the only one "addicted" to chips, Daniel! The trick is not to buy them. Easier said than done, hwever!

I go overboard with Manhattan Clam Chowder when I make it.

Are some foods addictive?

http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/23/health/pizza-and-other-foods-addictin...

I admit to a potato chip habit. I eat them even though I know they are bad for me, and after eating them the salt and fat load causes nausea and a weird, unpleasant sensation in my brain and spine. I need AA for potato chips. PCA.

One lays documentary on sugar. This one is Australian. The director / presenter changed his own diet to one that had the same number of calories, and a "normal" amount of processed food containing hidden sugar. He gained lots of weight, developed liver disease and mood disorders, and his skin went bad. wow!

UK documentary / campaign about sugar.

One nice aspect about home cooking is we can add less or no sugar.

And I was just thinking about making an apple pie... Maybe make one and freeze half for later?

Irish documentary about sugar - in US I think we eat even more.

I tried it again, paying attention to the taste.  I don't think it's too sweet, but the watermelon part doesn't taste very good and has a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Of course, your millage may vary.  You may not taste any bitterness because it appears I'm more sensitive to bitter than most people.  Also, my tasting apparatus is 75 years old and not as sensitive as when young.
