So, there's the Food Porn thread for extremely decadent and delicious foods. But what are the simple but shameful veg*n foods that you eat in large quantities when you're the last one up sitting on the couch vegetating and no one else is around to watch and judge? I'll start:



-Hummus. Must be eaten from the storage container with a spoon for proper effect.

-Vegan Ice Cream. Best if you're finishing off a container because no one wants to wash a bowl at midnight.

-Chocolate Sauce. Use a spoon. Or drink it if it's thin enough.

-Peanut Butter. See Peanut Butter Thread for details.

-Cinnamon Sugar. Only if cinnamon toast has been made earlier in the day. Can also be eaten with a spoon.

-Also, if you're eating chips or crackers, there's no better bowl than your stomach.



Now, share your own dreadful midnight snacks!

don't take my life away, don't take my life away.

I eat a pound of spinach or romaine leaves just sitting on the couch at night.

Sometimes a whole pineapple and container of blueberries but that's usually earlier in the day.

More energy to do NASTY things after I'm done vegetating.

I don't know, I don't really like the idea of "shameful" foods - although if I had to pick I'd say any dairy, in part because at one point I ate so much of it, and now, knowing what I know, I try to limit my intake to an occasional treat.

Wine. Lots of cheap, classless white zinfandel. My mother swears I have no taste whatsoever and must have been switched at birth with someone else's child every time I break it out.

Toasted "Dave's Killer Bread" with enough margarine to make it soggy...



OR an entire pound or more of baby arugula, eaten with my hands, out of the bag like chips. I must have some serious deficiency because any time I get arugula I INHALE the entire container plain without doing anything to it. No control whatsoever. (At least it's just greens, right?)

Chips, corn chips, popcorn, crackers with dip - I can get through a shameful amount of those at any time

Also don't forget the jam (with a spoon). You can still have PBJ with just a spoon. Or PB and chocolate spread too. Mmm....

Hummus is a biggie for me right now as well. I also love bread as I usually bake it on weekend evenings so my home smells like bread I'm watching tv late at night and tempts me...ugh! Self-sabotage really.

Geez, I wish I had the problem of eating a whole bag of spinach or arugala! And plain?!



I go through phases, I don't really have a certain food that always gets to me or that I eat large quantities of all the time. Pretzels, cookies, veggies with hummus, popcorn, a spoonful of dark chocolate peanut butter, peanut butter on a cracker. It really varies. What's bad is when I eat one thing, I'm not satisfied, so I have something else, and so on... so a little bit of everything instead of a lot of one thing.

At least it's not super simple to make/have. Unless you make banana bread all the time and then there's a problem.

Salty crunchy tortilla chips and very spicy salsa. Kettle corn when the mood strikes me.

I have been known to buy three or four Lara Bars and then eat them all within a few hours.

^ Me too. I usually don't drink often or to excess but I can drink cheap wine by myself straight out of the bottle like a pirate, lol...



Also saltine crackers. I can gorge myself on them if I get a wild hair.

I'm not a late night eater but hummus (with sesame oil and a ton of garlic) and carrots can definitely put me into a shame state because I have absolutely no control if it's in the house. The last time I made it I ate the entire batch in 2 days- nobody else got a bite of it. Lunch, snack and dinner for 2 days in a row.

My daughter is the exact same way with saltines. It is astounding how many she can eat.
