Organic Popcorn For Movie Night

We LOVE popcorn especially “movie popcorn.” Is that stuff the best??? However, I’m sure I do not need to get into how horrible this stuff is on your body’s filters (colon, liver, blood, etc). It’s definitely stuff that clogs you up not to mention it’s doused with MSG (which excites your neurotransmitters to death -verry bad for ADD/ADHD). So’s here a healthier alternative the next time it’s a movie rental night. With your popcorn machine maker you will still follow the exact same directions BUT you will substitute with organic ingredients:

Organic popcorn kernels

3/4 Cold Pressed Organic Coconut Oil 

1/4 100% Expeller Pressed Organic Avocado Oil 

1 tsp Sea salt

1 tbsp Walker & Sons “Slap Ya Mamma” (Cajun seasoning)

I’ve tried using only coconut oil but it made the popcorn way too soggy. I don’t know what your directions say as for how much oil to use so divided it up into the ratio of 3/4 coconut oil and 1/4 avocado oil cause it makes the popcorn taste just right 🙂. Experiment with a different ratio of these two oils until you find what taste best for you. Charlie’s friends love my popcorn!! I love it when they say, “I can’t believe organic food can taste this good.” They are always asking me to make this when they spend the night. Or they will ask Charlie to bring popcorn to school with him. When I ask Charlie to describe the taste he says it’s “In between crunchy and slightly soggy but perfectly salted and buttery. And the chocolate just pulls it all together.”

 I will usually sprinkle the sea salt and the Cajun seasoning over the popcorn while it’s turning in the oil. Once it’s finish popping, I will sometimes pour a small amount of melted Smart butter over it, then sprinkle more Cajun seasoning, and sprinkle in some Sunspire Semi-sweet Organic Chocolate Chips.

P.S I do not suggest putting chocolate in all the time (2 tbsp is 8g sugar) or the Smart Butter. This is a treat and should not be abused or you will continue to have yeast problems. Also this not something you need to eat when doing a yeast/fungus cleanse either. Even though making popcorn with coconut oil helps keep the yeast control down, you should omit all yeast food (corn) during a cleanse for optimum results.

Enthusiastically yours,
