Snack time check-in: Popcorn

 

Hey there!

I’m about to have a snack and thought I’d do another check-in to share it with you…virtually, of course. 😉

I’ve actually been very snack-y lately.  For awhile, I was on a Greek yogurt kick, and it’s probably no secret that I love to make smoothies as an afternoon pick-me-up.

However, my healthy snack of choice these past few weeks has been popcorn.  Even though popcorn is high in fiber, I usually try to give it a little nutritional boost by adding something extra.

 

 

 

Today’s snack was made by combining:

  • Air-popped popcorn
  • 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil (serving size depends on the amount of popcorn)
  • sprinkling of sea salt to taste

Sometimes I’ll sprinkle on a little nutritional yeast and Earth Balance butter instead.  The Earth Balance coconut spread also works really well, and believe it or not, cinnamon is a great topping too.

What do you like to snack on when you get hungry?  Some other favorites of mine are apples and also carrots with hummus.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

  1. Love snacking on fruits and veggies:) What brand of popcorn do you use? I am having issues with the amount of hulls or staleness at times. I am going to have to try coconut spread – I put a little coconut milk in my coffee. Have a Great One:)

    • I also love coconut milk in coffee. 🙂 I buy the Trader Joe’s popcorn and also the generic brand from Earth Fare, our local health food supermarket. If you cannot find some that you like, let me know. I’ll send you some! 🙂

      • Thanks for the brands of popcorn to try – have a Trader Joe’s here and will have to check their brand out! I might check at Whole Foods too.

    I love air popped popcorn! Unfortunately I haven’t been snacking on many healthy things lately. But when I am being healthier, I like to go for edamame! It’s gotta be something salty and crunchy for me.
