Popcorn time with Webber Naturals!
Add some pizzazz to your movie night snack with this Tasty Tuesday tip of the week!
What is the most popular snack to buy or make when you are watching a movie? Popcorn! When you go to the cinema, the smell of popcorn is everywhere. Open those doors and you are most likely walking into a cloud of popcorn aroma that make a cartoon trail to the snack bar! Look on the floor and you will probably see pieces of the buttery corn treats that have been dropped on the way to the different screening rooms.
At home, although probably less messy (seeing as we would have to clean it up ourselves), popcorn is a quick and easy go to for a snack. Who hasn't heard the unmistakable popping from the microwave or stove as the buttery, salty smell begins to fill the kitchen?!
As delightful as this snack is, sometimes, I'm not in the mood for the butter-soaked movie house option or the salty (20% or more of your daily sodium!), microwavable packets. On top of the sodium, there's also those pesky trans fats and mystery preservatives! So what's our alternative without sacrificing this classic movie snack? It's time to turn to the blank canvas of fresh air-popped popcorn! Did you know that plain air-popped popcorn is full of antioxidants and three cups contains as much fibre as a cup of brown rice?! It may be dull and tasteless alone but it gives you the creative kitchen freedom to make your very own flavoured popcorn! And there's no need to limit yourself to butter!
