This is a random post. You all know that food, yoga, health, and fitness are big parts of my life. But what else do I do for fun? One of the hobbies I’ve picked up recently is making earrings. It’s fun, relaxing, and gets my creative juices flowing. These are some of my recent creations…
On to food! Since I’m currently out of a job, and being frugal is one of my passions, I wanted to share a money-saving tip. A fun and easy snack that I make a lot is popcorn. But I don’t buy the 100-calorie bags because it’s much cheaper to pop your own.
Ingredients (for 1 100-calorie bag)
- brown paper lunch bag
- ~3 tablespoons unpopped kernels
- non-stick cooking spray
- salt, cinnamon, chili powder
- Place the kernels in the lunch bag. Fold over the top. Microwave for 2-3 minutes (until there are a few seconds between pops).
- Pour the popcorn into a bowl. Spray with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle on your desired spices.
Eat! There are actually premade seasonings that you can buy in stores – I like Kernel Season’s the best. I get the Nacho Cheddar flavor.
Stay tuned for a product review (some very “virtuous” granola products), another way to use turmeric, some Japanese soba noodles, a new book by a fellow blogger, and more. What is your favorite popcorn flavor?
