Masks are still required in healthcare settings per CDC and state health department guidelines.
Popcorn is high in fiber and it also contains phenolic acids - a type of antioxidant. While it’s delicious eaten with just a little salt, adding some other savory or sweet flavors makes it a great snack for after school/work or while watching a movie.
Carefully pop kernels in a large pot on stove with avocado or canola oil. You may also use an air popper.
Place popped kernels in a large bowl and add nuts, seeds and dried fruit. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sea salt topping or another topping of choice.
Divide popcorn into smaller bowls or bags for snacks at school or the office.
Other flavor suggestions:
Parmesan, cumin, sea salt, pinch of cayenne and nutritional yeast – adjusting proportions to your preference. Nutritional yeast has a subtle cheese/savory flavor and is a good source of fortified B12.
