I love Jolly Time Healthy pop 100 Calorie mini bag of Kettle Corn. Perfect sweet and salty combo and a very "Snacky" food.

Babybel Light Laughing Cow cheese. Love them. Two for 100 calories and a good hit of protein.

I find "addiction" a strange choice of word for a light-hearted topic... but I get the sentiment.

I would say Pommelo (Or pummelo or pomelo- I've seen all these spellings) has been my favorite dessert this year. I just love eating them. It takes a good 30-45 min to eat because I peel it like an orange and then peel each section individually. Then I break each piece in half and feed half to my BF and eat the other half myself. Have you tried this fruit? It's sort of like a grapefruit, but more mild. And it's gorgeous to look at too. A feast for all the senses.

Apple sauce, made with nothing but organic apples, or just apples and cinnamon.

I'm really into beans at the moment... bean soups, lentil curries, hummus, baked beans, black beans in anything but especially spicy Mexican-style dishes.

As boring as it sounds--Saltines. 60 calories for five. They usually take away any hunger pains.

I seriously cannot rave about this stuff enough, Edemame. It is so delicious, and it's a low calorie, high protein snack that is fun to eat. Just boil or steam the pods, sprinkle with some sea salt, then eat the beans. Delish!

Beans.... oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh (picture Homer Simpson looking at donuts) I love beans but will rarely eat them... Lentils, Hummus (especially lemon cilantro..mmmm) black beans, chili beans... I so miss beans.......

But my new addiction...maybe chicken wings. Always loved them, but I can pig out with a clear conscience. =)

[quote=k8yk]I find "addiction" a strange choice of word for a light-hearted topic... but I get the sentiment.[quote=k8yk]

That is funny that you said that because as I was eating my apple with peanut butter with a hearty "mmmmmmm" this morning, my husband laughed and said "I think you are addicted to that new peanut butter" and I said, "Well, if I am going to get addicted to anything I am happy that it is this good and this good for me....which in turn got me thinking and as you can see started this new post! Smile

On a more serious note...I think that I am a person who is a food addict. I find that I deal with different types of foods the same way that an alcoholic would. Avoidance is best because a little "taste" leads to a binge (mostly when dealing with sweets, chocolates, cookies, ect.) This is probably going to be my longest and hardest battle to keep under control (I learned a lot about myself over this holiday!).

so, to be able to say that I have an "addiction" to healthier foods and perfer them over some of my past choices is no small feat for me.

I have some family members who are addicts. Like, the Intervention type of addict. So the word has really serious negative painful connotations for me. I always have a hard time with this word being used about food because I'm used to thinking of it in terms of Heroin.

I understand what people mean by it, but to me, if you wouldn't harm your child in pursuit of a cookie... it isn't the same thing.

Not that I don't think people CAN be addicted to food- clearly they can. But it's just used so casually by anyone who eats too much, it's pretty much lost all meaning at this point.

Anyway, I understood what you meant.

Emerald cocoa roast almonds, by a wide margin.

But also cottage cheese, blueberries, and Progresso black bean or chili soups...

nothing better than the taste of celery and salsa in a bed of iceberg lettuce. I really like it!

As far as health food goes? Tomato and Cucumber slices covered in vinegar, garlic powder, oregano, a dash of salt, and a couple shakes of the parmasan cheese shaker. I can eat it all day on Sundays (before Monday's Weigh-in).

My kryptonite though is still thin crust pepperoni pizza. If given the option, with no consequence, I would eat pizza for every meal. Come to think of it, I have more than a few weekends in my past of doing just that.

Alas, there are consequences and I am using this site as a result. My pizzas now are made on wheat pitas and are more mushroom than pepperoni...but don't forget the oregano!!!! God help you if you forget the oregano!!!!

I am on Atkins and was missing my nightly cup of warm milk, lol. But now I have discovered yummy almond milk and am acquiring a taste for it. At first, I was "YUCK"...the same as with my first sip of diet cola. But watching my scale numbers go in the right direction, I am very content with my nightly cup of warmed almond milk, sometimes with cinnamon in it. Hubby thinks I am a nut when I sigh drinking it, but I do enjoy it and soon, it will taste sweet. I am retraining my taste buds so they do not get me in trouble again!!!

Also (but not for you Atkins folks. Sorry), Kashi Go Lean Crunch. At first it tasted like packing peanuts to me, but now I love it.

I've been eating a sweet bell pepper every day for a snack. It also helps my cravings for something sweet. I cut it up into slices and am able to munch on it at my desk. I love munch candy at my desk so this has helped a lot. And it fills me up so I don't want the candy later

I love sugar free jello with fat free cool whip on top. I can eat two serving at less than 50 calories total and it satisfies my sweet tooth completely. It is also filling in my tummy and I don't feel guilty if I eat it late at night.
