Are there any foods you feel guilty eating?
not just weight wise, but environmentally, ethically, etc
No, not at all. It's your body, your choices. Eating some things in excess has consequences, but as long as you accept and take responsibility for them no guilt attaches unless you create it yourself.
Personally, I love a properly done rack of lamb in a good wine sauce, and I appreciate the fuzzy little gamboling sheep who gave his all for my culinary delight. I don't feel guilty about it, though. He would never have lived at all to gambol in the sun for a while were I to prefer bean stew.
Panda coated in bald eagle sauce........... Pretend you didn't read that....
No, I never ate anything that made me feel guilty. If I thought it would make me feel like that, I would not eat it.
You have lots of willpower that some of us don't have!
I took a nutrition class many years ago...learned to take responsibility for what I eat, this is a lifestyle, not a diet. Recognize nutritional value, if you love a particular food, eat it occasionall'y, in moderation...no need to deprive yourself.
I would feel guilty eating the whole of a portion of food which I know someone else wants - and I would normally offer them a bite (not necessarily half). Even a dog looking at me soulfully and licking its lips when I'm eating could have this effect on me. I wouldn't necessarily give it anything, as this would be bad training, but I might shoosh it away, so that I can eat with a clear conscience!
I would certainly not want to eat good food in front of someone very poor or starving and would probably offer to share, probably giving them most of it, or even all of it if I am feeling particularly guilty.
I also feel guilty eating delicious, yummy, crunchy pork scratchings, knowing they are full of saturated fat and very unhealthy.
We should not do that, any food at all is too much in front of a person who has none. I like the way you are so descriptive in your examples!
That's sweet. If I'm carrying leftovers and someone asks for any chance for food, I happily will give them the food I'm carrying. I've only once seen it turned down, and that was because they guy was vegetarian
yes, peanut butter cups. I haven't bought any for a few months but I feel it is going to happen again soon!
Halloween season is definitely my downfall when it comes to pb cups. I definitely indulge this time of year
I like these too. I recommend you eat it occasionally when you want it Don't deprive yourself and don't wait months because that's when you over indulge. "Moderation, not deprivation" is the key to guiltless eating habits.
Peanut butter I used to but now have gotten my consumption down to a few tablespoons a day and the new brand is lower fat. I have lost 5 pounds, walking and haven't given up any foods really. I rarely eat anything like french fries or other fried food, and Do feel guilty if I do and that really takes most of the enjoyment up. I am a firm believer that peanut butter is good for us, and doubt I will ever give it up even for one day, thats if I can't get my hands on any of the luscious spread!!
You may want to try peanut butter on a celery stick, tastes great. Maybe less guilt. There is also almond butter, also good.
Almond butter is excellently delicious! plus it has so many good nutrients in it too. Personally, I'm not a fan of celery. Too many stringy bits. But give me an apple, and I'm pretty happy
mmm, I'd feel guilty eating to much... it's bad for your health, and it could've benefitted someone else.
Yes, there are some foods which are religiously forbidden like the pork, while some others are not expressly forbidden in religions but their eating is discouraged like all animals having tusk or canine or birds having claws other than pigeons or chickens or similar domestic birds. Also many people can not imagine eating frogs or snakes or insects or reptiles like lizards or the corpse of animals that were not slaughtered for eating but died in accidents, and the latter are expressly forbidden in religions.
Most of the things I eat, weight wise.... I never feel guilty about what I eat environmentally or ethically.
Can't think of anything being bad other than weight-wise. Weight-wise though, I think everything produces guilt to some extent, unless it's rabbit food. Without guilt we'd eat as much as we'd like with no fear of the consequences.
I always feel guilty after eating chilli cheese fries. I LOVE them but I know they are so unhealthy...
I've never heard of chilli cheese fries before - sounds divine, and you might just have tempted me to try some
Chili cheese fries are wonderful! They used to be my late night food at my favorite diner before I stopped eating meat
There are chili cheese fries sold locally, but I never had the urge to try them...just one of those things. I do know people who love them too.
Anyone who hasn't tried them should at least taste them once
So what exactly are they? Do you buy them in a packet or what?
You make fries, you put prepared chili on top of them, and then you melt cheese on top
ThompsonPen is exactly right. Some restaurants here in NC serve them. If you go out to eat at places like sports bars they may have them on the menu.
Gadfry. I think I'd rather have a fried lard sandwich.
LOL @ Attikos. That's why I feel guilty after eating them.
I love, love chocolate... and the new yogurt phenomena. Yeah it's suppose to be good for you but with all the toppings they offer it's far from healthy.

Should a person feel guilty about feeling blessed, for not losing a loved one for any reason?For every winner, there is a loser. For every loser, there is a winner. Why do some feel it is wrong to give God credit, but so easy to give God blame? Whatever one believes is their choice and should be...
