A Healthier Version of Popcorn


Popcorn is one of my favorite salty snacks. The key is to be sure you are getting the healthiest version.

Making popcorn the old-fashioned way in a kettle on the stove is my number one choice, especially over using the microwave. Opting for microwaved popcorn exposes you to lots of chemicals and has very little nutritional value.

Here is a healthy recipe to satisfy your salty craving.


Non-GMO popcorn kernels (be sure it is labeled as Non-GMO)
Pasture Butter
Virgin Coconut oil
Sea Salt
Nutritional Yeast (high in amino acids and B vitamins and adds a nice cheesy flavor)

Add 1 tablespoon on coconut oil to a medium size kettle, melt on medium-high heat. Add one non-gmo kernel to the oil and wait until it pops.

Once the single kernel pops add 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels to the melted coconut oil, cover kettle and gently shake, moving the kernels frequently.

Move the kettle more rapidly one all kernels continuously start popping to avoid burning. When popping slows, move kettle to a cool burner and transfer popcorn to a large bowl.

Melt a tablespoon of butter and pour on popcorn.

Add sea salt and nutritional yeast to flavor and enjoy!
