One of the best (and most expensive!) things to do at a movie theater is the popcorn. That yummy buttery, salty taste of freshly popped corn is enough to make me wear sweatpants every I see a movie. But woe is me -- I've learned to bring a bag of trail mix with me to the theater. Or better, yet, a bag of my own homemade popcorn. Because my homemade popcorn is delicious and not smothered in factory butter...which means that I can make it a part of my eating arsenal.
Popcorn can be a smart snack for a number of reasons. It's low in calories ( you can eat 3 cups of it for under 100 calories) and it is versatile. Popcorn transforms when it is dusted with curry powder or pumpkin pie spice. Seriously! It will change your world. And if you are loving popcorn, then try these three flavorings to spice up your popcorn:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn
**You can portion the popcorn into small bags to take with you to work or to the theaters (sorry Regal, we won't pay $7 for your popcorn anymore!)
Pumpkin Pie Popcorn
