Make your own popcorn for a quick and healthy snack! Get the recipe here


It is a good snack, but you may want to think twice before you microwave your next batch. Researchers at the University of Toronto found that the chemicals used to coat the insides of microwavable bags can contaminate the foods in the packages and enter your bloodstream. These substances were shown to break down into perflurinated carboxylic acids (PFCAs) which have been linked to cancer. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing which bags contain them, because manufacturers do not put that info on the package.

You can still safely pop your favorite snack in a flash!  

Use a big pot with a lid.  Put 1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil into the pot.  Add 1 tsp of Celtic or Himalaya salt and 1/2 cup of organic yellow popcorn. Put the lid on.  At medium heat shake the pot as the kernels “pop”, on a regular basis.  When there are only a few “pops”, shut off the stove and remove the lid.  You can also use a popcorn machine.  It is safe and quick!
