I think we all could consider ourselves "foodies" in one way or another. If you ask me, I would consider myself one just because I love eating, however according to this recent survey this may not really mean you are a foodie.

According to a new poll done of 2,000 adults, the top signs that you are considered a "foodie" would involve knowing what all the herbs on, following actual cookbook recipes and watching cooking shows every week. Not much indication that just liking to eat really makes you a "foodie" which is sad in my case but maybe not for yours. If you want to know whether you have earned the label of "foodie," check out the top 20 signs below that you are a foodie.
