After a couple of years living in Portugal and shopping at open air markets, we got used to cooking pretty much exclusively with fresh, real ingredients.

We very seldom eat sweets, but usually home made with half sugar, or Splenda, depending on what it is.

I usually make one pumpkin pie per year, one cheesecake per year, one apple pie per year, and one batch of shortbread per year, and that's it.

I cook from scratch 99% of the time, and maybe get a store bought barbecue chicken and salad once in a summer. Occasionally, we'll have hot dogs and tinned soup.

I read quite often now that processed foods make us behave like junkies - and the solution is, of course, to buy as little processed food as possible. I've made some progress on that road, I still buy bread, yoghurt and cheese but I eat sparingly of it. Things like ketchup, sauces, mixed spices, cake, cookies, ready-made meals, etc are not allowed in my kitchen. Our main food consists of fruit and vegetables, and the unstoppable food cravings have calmed down. Much better! Does this sound Spartan?

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..." 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!

Comment by Qiana-Maieev on September 16, 2016 at 11:52pm

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

Are some foods addictive?

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!
