Spicy snack time

 I am a lover of popcorn, the real kind, popped on the stovetop in a pan with coconut oil, my favorite healthy fat and nutritional powerhouse. For those whose eating guidelines don’t allow fat, fire up that air popper! Popcorn is loaded with fiber and makes an excellent snack- with or without the oil, especially if you jazz it up with some toppings like Himalayan salt, parmesan cheese, hot sauce, seasoned salt, garlic powder, nutritional yeast etc.. Or you can go with a spicy blend such as this one from Rachael Ray:

Rachel Ray's Spicy Popcorn

Pop up one cup of popcorn kernels, then stir in:

1/2 tsp sweet paprika

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

This makes a big batch to share, or divide into servings to pack and take when you’re on the go. I couldn’t possibly be the only one who needs my daytime crunchy/spicy fix, could I? Didn’t think so…
