throw back Thursday (on a Friday): popcorn

popcornLife is complicated.

Sometimes I think things that are meant to simplify it – ahem, technology – complicate it more. Way back when, before blogs and Facebook and Pinterest grew in popularity, finding a new recipe meant thumbing through a cookbook or recipe cards. Today, it’s possible to spend hours “googling” recipes and oogling mouth watering concoctions created by blessedly talented people. I spent 30 minutes last night just looking at meal planning ideas.

As much as I enjoy learning about new flavors and recipe creations and the best way to plan out meals ahead of time, sometimes I crave the simple things.

Like popcorn. With dairy free butter.

Popcorn and I go way back…right from a little girl who was supposed to be in bed but at the smell of popcorn would pop out of bed and make an appearance downstairs. Popcorn is movies and late nights and special outings. It’s healthier that potato chips, fun to make and I still enjoy it when it’s a day old. (I think popcorn’s only downside is the mess.)

Popcorn is one of my “go to” snacks.

Back in January, I posted about one of my other “go to” snacks. Go to snacks are essential to sticking with a particular way of eating, especially when you first make some changes. And though it is possible for a go to snack to be more complicated than a handful of raisins or a bowl of popcorn, I think the best go to snacks require little effort but are satisfying enough to tide you over to the next main meal.

So what is your favorite go to snack? Do you have a favorite popcorn story?

Tired of struggling with your addiction to sugar? Afraid that life will be so...depressing without it?

What if I told you that you could immediately start cutting back on your sugar consumption and you wouldn't even miss it?!

Sound too good to be true?

It isn't!

You see, food manufacturers slip sugar into their recipes because it keeps you addicted and craving more of their product. Creepy, right? But for many of these products, added sugar has no business being there in the first place and you won't even miss it if it's gone!
