Hummus! Pesto, roasted chickpea tacos, butternut squash french fries, baked sweet potatoes (delicious absolutely plain), Annie Chun's Seaweed Snacks, black bean burgers, roasted red peppers, quinoa, toasted walnuts candied in local honey....
Whole foods are delicious, and good for you. Just remember, everything in moderation. Cook at home so you KNOW what's in your food. If you cut all the added salt out of your diet, you'll be amazed at how your sense of taste changes to be able to catch all the subtle flavors (plus, you can lose all that retained water weight just by cutting out salt. True story!)
you don't have to be addicted to any kind of food to like it. although I've found some fruits addicting (too much sugar in fruit if its more than a little bit though) just eat a well balanced diet and you'll end up being happy with it. you'll eventually not miss junk food much.
There are no super healthy addictive foods. If you want to go on a diet, try to find some healthy recipes or delicious dinner ideas so that way you can go on a diet and like it. If you don't like being on a diet while eating healthy food, then don't go on a diet.
By the way, there's nothing wrong with having a cheat day every now and then.
Peanut butter It tastes really good and is super healthy! Even though it contains a decent amount of fat in it, it fills you up quickly and stops you from eating a large amount of food that tastes really good but doesn't fill you up, like fast foods. If you work out often peanut butter is the way to go.
