Herbs on Popcorn?

Have you ever felt a little run down? Do you find yourself wanting an afternoon snack to boost your energy, take away that hungry feeling, or maybe you just need some comfort food? I find that popcorn usually does all of the above for me.

There are several benefits from eating popcorn. Not only is it a delicious snack but it’s a great source of fiber, and most of us do not get enough fiber in our diets. Popcorn is also good for helping to lower cholesterol levels and control blood sugar levels. It’s good for helping people lose weight because of the fiber content.

My favorite way to eat popcorn is to pop organic popcorn in my hot air popper, drizzle it with extra virgin olive oil (not too much), and sprinkle it with sea salt or pink Himalayan salt. Yum! Whenever I want a different taste then I add one or two spices to it. These herbs also boost the immune system so it’s a win/win! There are a lot of good herbs to put on popcorn.  These are just some of them.

Use your imagination to come up with a healthy, sugar-free snack. A combination of Parmesan cheese and oregano together sound good to put on popcorn. What sounds good to you?

If you can’t tell, popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. I pop a small amount for a snack, probably four cups of popped popcorn (maybe five). In fact, it sounds good and I may go have some right now.

PS ~ Try to use organic popcorn but at the very least use Non-GMO.

Four Foods on Friday #19 Questions

From Fun, Crafts and Recipes

#1. Do you ever use scissors to cut any foods? Yes

Which? Raw or cooked?

Both. I use my kitchen scissors a lot, in fact, I have two pair of them. I use them the most to cut raw chicken. I get the best deal on chicken breast I can find and then cut it to the size I need. If I can’t get a good deal on boneless chicken but chicken breast with the bone is really a bargain, then I’ll use my scissors to cut it off the bone. Sometimes I use scissors to cut pizza.

#2. Popcorn. Homemade, microwave, bagged, hot, cold. How do you like it?

We like it popped in a hot air popcorn popper. Then we put extra virgin olive oil on it and salt (or sea salt). That’s our favorite way to eat it. And…I feel good about eating it that way because everything on it is healthy… in moderation.

(If anyone eats much of the microwave popcorn, I suggest researching the safety of the butter flavoring added to it. I’ve read articles that make me want to stay away from it.)

#3. Sushi. Love it or hate it?

I can’t stand the thought of eating raw fish. I think I tried it once when our s-i-l had some, and I didn’t like it.

#4. Share a dessert recipe.

I just posted a great dessert recipe that is easy: Pineapple Delight. If you like pineapple, this tastes like delicious pineapple cobbler. I got this recipe from a friend who has had several requests for her recipe.
