I'm similar, we were always low income growing up, so having a lot of food in the house was a real emotional sign of luxury. When food's low, I find I'll engage in hoarding mentality, eating off the kids plates, eating more....it's like it's the last food I'll see. Whereas when there's a lot of food, I pick what sounds good (the healthy option) and don't think about it as much. I think it's a safety issue for me.
