I like to try new foods every once in a while, but I try to keep it healthy.

Not at all. I very much stick to the same kinds of foods.

I love trying foods. My brother-in-law was the one who turned me into a foodie - he's an amazing cook and he and my sister are always taking me to new restaurants. He never got any training as a cook either - he works as a mechanic, but he loves cooking and even brews his own beer. Pretty sweet stuff (even though I don't drink)

Yes I am one. I love trying new cuisines all the time. Yes, I have a problem controlling how much I eat of something that I love.

I'm definitely a foodie ! Whenever I travel, I love eating like a local. I avoid the chains and head straight towards popular local places instead.

Love finding out of the way diners, bistros, cafes, etc....

I am definitely a "foodie." I love cooking shows, I collect cookbooks, and I love making new and different foods. I love eating out, but it has to be food that is cooked better than I cook my own. I also love the challenge in making gourmet foods that are healthy, low cal, and low fat.

Definitely
Wikipedia defines a foodie as someone who seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out for convenience or hunger. Eating healthy can be a great food experience as I learn to enjoy better and better options. I think mindful eating makes you a foodie

love trying new foods. when a new recipe catches my eye I want to try it. I eat better when I plan better. I made crab cevche the other day.......love that stuff. My new favorite love is pita pockets stuffed with lean meats, orange or yellow peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and low fat swiss cheese

Nope--not a foodie. Just love eating....but really only the "comfort foods" that I already know & enjoy. Trying new foods & recipes doesn't appeal to me very much.

No question. It defines me completely, darn it.

I love almost all food! Especially junk like burgers, pizzas & fried chicken! That is the problem!

Not sure whether you could call me a 'foodie'.
My food likes/preferences have changed, especially after deciding (around 15 months ago) to work at getting healthy. I could say healthy again, because I believe I was much better when I was living elsewhere and in the Reserves, and even afterwards I kept up with my running and exercise routine.

So, that many years passed, and I gained at least 50 lbs, and developed unhealthy eating habits, unfortunately.

Even my menu has changed since I began 15 months ago.
I've 'morphed' to try and eliminate most processed foods and junk.

About the only things from your list I've never eaten are:
okra
marmite (pretty sure too many additives, but haven't checked recently)
offal
trifle (or do you mean tripe) (because trifle is a dessert)

Do you like trying new things to eat, do you like eating most things, does the quality of what you eat make a difference to you, do you always want a bit more and find it impossible to stop when you are eating something you really like?

The things I don't eat are:

orange marmalade
pastrami
tofu
okra
parsnips
marmite
offal
trifle
fatty meat

I eat just about everything else.
