Want a healthy alternative to chips? Make some delicious popcorn. We have been brainwashed to think that popcorn is bad for us. Movie theater popcorn and microwave popcorn IS bad for us, but when you make popcorn at home in a healthy fat, it is good for you! It is a whole-grain, whole-food, high-fiber, unprocessed food. Don't feel guilt over popcorn anymore.
Makes about 12 cups
Heat, in a medium saucepan, covered, over medium heat:
1 ½ tablespoons coconut oil
2 popcorn kernels
When you hear the 2 kernels pop, you know the pan is heated enough. Now add:
1/3 cup popcorn
Occasionally shake the pan during cooking. When you no longer hear popping, turn heat off, carefully take off lid and pour into a large serving bowl. Drizzle 2 tablespoons melted butter over and salt to taste. Enjoy!
