Hey Healthy Mamas!
This week I thought I'd share a super simple snack that I've been really loving lately. And not only is it super easy to make but it's super healthy and perfect for the late night cravings!
I give you this:
Popcorn is high in fibre, low in calories and contains no sodium or sugar. Unfortunately, all that prettiness is masked by trans fats & popcorn lungs when you buy the microwaveable pouches! I first heard about this method from Averie at Love Veggies & Yoga. She regularly posts amazing raw & healthy recipes and is so passionate about helping others achieve a healthy balance! So, grab the following ingredients & get popping!
- 1/3 cup kernels
- whatever flavors you wish: cinnamon, choc chips, sea salt, nutritional yeast, peanuts
- spoonful of earth balance butter
- pot with a lid
Melt butter in pot on med/high heat then add kernels and cover with a lid. They will start popping after 30 seconds and will be done when you don't hear popping for 10 sec. Give pot a little shake then pour in bowl and sprinkle with toppings. I personally love shaking nutritional yeast & dark choc chips on mine! If you'd like to learn about a brown bag/microwave version - check out Averie's post here.
