Healthy Comfort Food Winter Treats

When the weather is chilly and you’re cuddled up with your family or sweetie watching a good movie, or the kids have just gotten home from school, popcorn is a perfect snack. Here are some tasty alternatives to regular butter and salt. My kids grew up on these.

Ideally use an air popper and organic popcorn.

If you are allergic to corn you can break up rice cakes to use as popcorn.


Cheesy Corn

Toss popcorn with melted butter or olive oil.

Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and salt.

It’s amazingly delicious!


Carmel-y Corn

¼ cup butter   –   melt and add:

¼ cup honey   – heat together for a half minute or so. Turn off heat and add:

¼ tsp vanilla


Stir into popped corn. You won’t believe how tasty this is!
