Fancy Popcorn (ssshhh... it's healthy too!)

Do you like popcorn as much as me?

Here is a simple way to make your popcorn "fancy" and add some nutritional goodness! My friend, Sarah, taught me about these super health foods that easily transform regular popcorn (and other meals). 

Fancy (and Healthy) Popcorn 
  • Popped popcorn (microwave or stove... whatever you like) 
  • About 4 sprays of the Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • About 3 teaspoons of Nutritional Yeast Flakes 
  • Mix together with your hands. Add more of either if you want. 
This popcorn tastes a bit salty, cheesy and a hint of nutty flavor... pretty great. 

Info on the healthy stuff... 

The Nutritional Yeast Flakes may seam strange... and well, they sort of are, but they are great! You can buy them at most health food stores. I found this container (smallest they had) at Whole Foods. The product is this flaky yellow stuff that kind of looks like fish food. The amzaing part is it has a lot of protein in just a little sprinkle of it. The taste is a mixture of cheesy and nutty. Interesting, right? 

The Bragg Liquid Aminos is also pretty interesting. It is basically like a soy sauce. Super salty tasting and loaded with lots of amino acids that are great for you.
