Ok, since we're almost always talking about healthy eating on VB, I thought I'd throw this question in to take you off guard.



What are some of your favorite food/candy that you know is bad for you?



Here's some of mine:



Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

French Fries

Chocolate (might be considered good for you)

Cream Soda

Diet Soda would be my worst vice. Occasionally, I have fries. I'll have to see, tho. I only just turned vegan, so I haven't found my vegan comfort foods yet. I kinda like soy ice cream, but I just eat a few spoonfuls here and there, so I don't think I'm gonna end up with a chunky monkey on my back with that.



I also smoke a pipe, but not every day. However, all the tobacco is plant-based, so it's technically vegan.



And of course, there's

For me, tortilla chips, tortilla chips, tortilla chips. Set down a bag of tortilla chips in front of me and you'd better just back away slowly. Ditto on Green & Black's dark chocolate bar. I seem to be able to control myself somewhat with the Maya Gold variety.

I imbibe heavily. Not on a regular basis, but I do like to drink and drink alot. I also love candy. I will eat it until my teeth hurt. I'm not kidding. I stock up on half-price candy after every holiday. I have a huge tin can in the kitchen (the kind you buy with popcorn in it) full of all kinds of candy, and sometimes there isn't enough room in it. My favorite kinds are those filled strawberry ones, flavored tootsie rolls, Cadbury cream eggs, those new Toll House candy bars with the cookie dough, candy corn, jolly ranchers, Kentucky mints, Dutch mints, root beer barrels, lemon drops, etc.

Everything and anything I bake. Chocolate cupcakes, vanilla cake, chocolate chip cookies, coffee cake, peanut butter cookies, pudding. Good thing I usually make things to give away to people or else I would devour it all at once! Damn vegan cookbooks...making me bake bad-for-me food...grumblegrumble.



But chocolate chips rank high on the top ten best processed foods list...and newman O's cookies, and animal crackers. Oh man....

Diet Coke, I keep justifying it with it having "only one calorie" even though the caffeine and aspartame are pretty horrible for you!

Chips or any kind. Fortunately, I'm pretty good at resisting buying them and as long as they're not in the house, I won't eat them.

****...i dunno if I really have a food vice.

I just kinda eat what I want. Maybe all my food is food vices.

Lately, though, its been stuff I make with coconut milk.

French fries. I couldn't even resist them when I had an eating disorder. Ironically, friends offering me fries kept me alive towards the end when I lived off a cup of KoolAid, 2 pinesapple rings and a 1/4 cup of Kraft Dinner every day.

McCain's Seasoned Super Curly Fries, Tofutti anything (particularly the vanilla fudge soy cream). Yeah, those are probably my worst ones. Carrot muffins too. Damn those are good. With tofutti cream cheese icing! And now I want some. Crap.

Sugar free beverages are definitely a vice (not pop - bubbles hurt my throat really bad). I live for Sugar Free Kool Aid ()



And cereal. If it's there I eat it. Which sucks, not only because it's not that great for you (depending on the kind), but also I'm wheat intolerant, so I end up throwing up and sleeping a good portion of the day.

Diet soda and chocolate. Yum.



On occasion, beer, but not as often as the diet cola and chocolate.

You should try cranberry sunrise. It's from Kashi and wheat free. I think you may need to adjust to the taste of the cranberries, but after that its really good.
