Came across this tonight in one of those end of the year lists.
I guess Eater Nation found it in the New York Post.
"TV food person/neologist Rachael Ray has coined a new term: "Eaties,"
which she defines as people who "eat a lot." Quote Ray, referring to
Cheech Marin and Lou Diamond Phillips, both contestants on her
absolutely stellar-looking upcoming show, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity
"Going in, I knew that Cheech and LDP were good cooks, but a lot of
them just wanted to become better at working with food and consider
themselves foodies because they are eaties, they eat a lot."
So it seems safe to assume that someone like Homer Simpson would be an
eatie. Also, it's a separate term from "foodie": one can be a foodie
and an eatie, or one and not the other."
Ok, so if we eat medieval foods, does that make us medieval eaties too?
