Top 10 Ways to Enjoy Popcorn, a Healthy Whole-Grain
Popcorn is healthy whole grain that can be enjoyed a variety of ways, as a snack, dessert or even as croutons. Corn comes in red, yellow, white, purple and blue. One of my favorite memories of cooking as a kid, was popping up blue popcorn that popped to bright white. Here are 10 ways to eat popcorn:
  1. Modern Twist on the Old Fashion- serve with melted healthy butter substitute (without any hydrogenated fats!)
  2. Parmesan-Garlic Popcorn- sprinkle with parmesan and garlic powder
  3. Popcorn Trail Mix- add dried cranberries and roasted unsalted almonds or mix it up with raisins, walnuts, pecans, or any of your favorite dried fruit and nut combinations
  4. Chili Powdered Popcorn- spice it up with salt and chili powder
  5. Italian Popcorn- flavor with Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese
  6. Apple Cinnamon Popcorn- include diced apple pieces and sprinkle with cinnamon; serve quickly after combining ingredients to keep apples crunchy!
  7. Garlic Popcorn- season with dried dill, lemon pepper, garlic powder, ranch dressing seasoning mix, and garlic salt
  8. Rosemary Popcorn- add crumbled dried rosemary, salt, and cayenne pepper
  9. Sugar n’ Spice Popcorn- for dessert, sprinkle with cinnamon and a teaspoon of sugar
  10. Honey Nut Popcorn- add peanuts, honey, and cinnamon
