Popping Your Way to a Happier Stomach

If you know me then you know I have popcorn kernels in my kitchen at all times. Yes, that’s right – popcorn kernels. None of those microwavable or pre-popped bags, but fresh, un-popped kernels. What can I say? I love them – everything about them! From watching a mere tablespoon of kernels explode into cups of popcorn over the stove to the sound of the crunch when I bite into that first, steaming, piece. There is just nothing like a big bowl of fresh, stove top popcorn. Just throw a little oil in a pan, add some kernels, and watch (and listen to) the magic happen.

In my opinion, popcorn is the perfect snack for any occasion, and if you get a little creative and give your popcorn a little TLC then it can also satisfy any craving. Here are some of my favorite ways to spruce up a simple batch of popcorn. Easy, healthy and delicious, I promise these popcorn hacks will not disappoint.

1.   Craving something sweet?
