I am such a snacky person and the problem with that is you're going to eat too much everyday. So I have tried to incorporate some healthy and healthier options in my repertoire. This one is in the healthier section. Who doesn't love popcorn? I think it's probably one of my favourite things to eat whilst watching a good movie. Sadly, the microwave popcorns are filled with an excessive amount of fat and salt and so I have made a recipe where you control how much you want to intake.
- Organic popcorn
- A generous amount of Coconut oil
Firstly heat a pot and put the coconut oil in. The reason why I use coconut oil is that is has a high smoke point, which basically means the heat doesn't destroy its beneficial values the way it destroys oils with a low smoke point. Put the popcorn in the pot, when the coconut oil has melted and put a lid on it. When you can hear the popcorn are starting to pop, you have to shake the pot regularly until there's approximately 5 seconds between the pops. If you keep it on longer at that point, the popcorn will start to burn. Put them in a bowl and put as much or as little salt on them as you please and desire.
And there you have it; a much healthier version of popcorn. I try to eat as healthy as possible, but sometimes it's okay to spoil yourself with treats. I really like the fact that the popcorn are a lot less salty and fatty, but if you're a huge fan of the traditional popcorn, it will take some time to get used to these.
I hope you guys are having a lovely day!
