As it turns out, I have quite a few. Oops. Oh well. The thing of it is, I'm actually a little proud of my food vices (and please note, I'm using the term "food" loosely here as for somethings I'm not sure how they even met FDA standards). Yeah, sure - everybody's body is a temple. But it is also fun to spurge and enjoy the things you like. In moderation of course.
So I am going to be honest and say that yes, while these food vices aren't fantastic, I don't eat them all the time (with the exception of coffee). And when I do, it's because I haven't had it in a while and I otherwise take good care of my body and my health.
So here it goes, my 'shortened' list of food vices...
1. A larger than normal amount of cream and sugar in my coffee. I mean, to the extent that most people comment when they see me doctor my coffee in the morning, if I "want any coffee with my cream and sugar." I'm not going to reveal all my secrets and talk about how many scoops of sugar, but it's pretty sweet. And I really like my coffee this way. Which is why I only have one cup a day.

2. Hot Dogs. I realize that what goes into hot dogs is a serious question. I can tell you right now, I don't care what "parts of a pig" are used to make a hot dog. They taste GOOD. Really good. So I have been known to enjoy a hot dog every now and again (more so in the summer so I think it balances well throughout the year).
3. Diet Coke. I believe there is a chemical sweetener in here that will kill you. But low doses, I'm not convinced. So I like to enjoy 1-2 diet cokes a week. I prefer the fountain soda to the can (there is a very different taste) but can't always get that so I generally need to hit up my 'private reserve' in the fridge downstairs (it's like my equivalent of a wine cellar). Please note, there is no substitute with Diet Pepsi. Ever. That's a waste of a soda treat.

4. Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli. I have no idea why I love Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli or why I think it tastes so delicious, but I do. It may have to do with the salt content. Regardless, there is something in this can of heaven that draws me in. I rarely enjoy this food vice but I can tell you, I do crave it. If you have never had this, I strongly encourage you to try it (just once). I am convinced that little Italian man laces his ravioli with crack...
