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.

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 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.

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:
marmite (pretty sure too many additives, but haven't checked recently)
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
fatty meat

I eat just about everything else.
