The holidays are centered around two things : family and food. This time of year delicious decadent recipes for the holidays are being cranked out. However, I’m going to present to you, my healthy holiday snack of homemade popcorn.
Did you know: The chemical perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of a popcorn bag, is part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from UCLA.
Homemade popcorn is not only healthier but dirt cheap. At about .36 cents per serving you can’t go wrong! Simply pick-up a bag of regular or organic popcorn kernels. A plain cup of popcorn is only 30 calories, the perfect way to snack without the guilt or harmful chemicals.
So I present to you my holiday special popcorn to enjoy before during or after the holidays. It’s a weird combination but I promise all those craving a spice kick will love it.
