curry parmesan popcorn
snacking proves to be an exceptionally challenging task now that i've started cutting down, or should i say, eliminating white sugar and wheat flour from my diet. ever since making these lifestyle changes and adopting healthier eating habits, i'm always wondering what i can snack on since i'm not someone who can eat three square meals a day. in the past, i would go for cakes, pastries, macarons and other sugary stuff because i made them often. now that i don't, i find writing down a list of healthy snacks is actually easier so i get lots of snacking ideas and this also prevents me from going back to my "old ways". a few of my current favorites are apple/banana + peanut butter, curried carrot salad, hummus dip & crackers and homemade popcorn.
i've not bothered making my own popcorn in the past because the ones from cinemas and grocery stores were enough to satisfy my cravings. now that i realize how easy and healthy to make my own, there's no going back to storebought. basically there are endless variations to seasoning them ie. chili lime, oldbay, herbs, truffle oil etc. for this batch, i sprinkled them with curry powder, parmesan and parsley and they were really good. i would not make sweet ones like caramel or marshmallow popcorn at home coz i find that the savory ones actually taste better. this is taken from simplyrecipes and i like how foolproof and simple this is.
