Dr-A, I don't eat crap. I never did. I've always avoided processed crap just because I personally think a lot of it tastes gross (I can make it better) and because I don't think it's healthy. I'm just saying that I haven't had to modify my diet since my diagnosis. I don't think the foods the OP listed are crap, so long as they aren't full of preservatives and eaten in moderation. What's unhealthy about
homemade chili? My recipe includes ground beef, onion, garlic, jalapenos, pinto beans, tomatoes, and tomato juice. If I find that things are bothering me, I'll quit eating them.
