Poppin' Corn

Raise your kernels for a toast to healthier popcorn!
In America popcorn is an essential snack - just a simple google search states more than 250 million pounds are consumed annually!

But have you ever researched where popcorn comes from? There is actually only a few varieties of corn that can be "popped" into our countries favorite snack.  When people think of popcorn, they usually think movies, salt and of course: BUTTER! But as I researched popcorn around the world, I started to find that America is an oddity when it comes to this treat. In other countries, they find our desire to drench our snack in butter very bizarre. I even saw a forum or two compare it to eating spoonfuls of mayonnaise!

Popcorn doesn't have to be all about butter though. Moderation in any treat is essential to a healthy lifestyle. To encourage those around me to try a healthier alternative, I hosted an educational booth at my county health fair and gave away free popcorn using my alternative methods. It was a hit! I popped 30 lbs of popcorn in less than a day!

Today's blog is to share with you just how to make this healthy alternative that was such a hit without missing any of the flavor!

Let's Pop Some Corn!

First it's all about method. 

I'd recommend air popped, but if you want to do it in butter, try swapping it out for an option that has Omega-3's: ghee!

I like using my stovetop popcorn maker when using oil and truly enjoying the sound of the popcorn popping while I am turning the handle.

 

When my popcorn is all popped. It's time to add some flavor! Skip the salt and try nutritional yeast! It gives the popcorn an almost cheesy like flavor that is simply irresistible! I promise, you won't regret it.

INGREDIENTS

1 heaping teaspoon of Ghee -If stove top method
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
Nutritional Yeast to taste
