Butter doesn't bother him. The main problem is milk, cottage cheese, things like that. But he is addicted to popcorn. emoticon

is your husband also allergic to butter since it is considered a dairy product? If not then the homeade popcorn would be a good idea.

I can't believe it's not butter spray has no calories and helps seasonings to stick to the popcorn:

sugar and cinnamon
Lawry's season salt
parmasan cheese and garlic powder
dry taco seasoning
dry ranch dressing packet
apple pie spice
pumpkin pie spice


The directions call for finishing this easy popcorn snack by baking it to harden the syrup. If you don't mind sticky popcorn, you can skip the baking step. In any case, be sure to cool the
popcorn before serving, as hot syrup can burn your mouth.
Recipe from The Diabetes Snack, Munch, Nibble, Nosh Book by Ruth Glick, (c)1998 by the American Diabetes Association, Inc.

10 cups popped low-fat microwave popcorn
6 caramel candies, cut into small pieces (kitchen shears will make this chore a breeze)
2 Tbsp dark or light corn syrup
1/2 Tbsp water

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a large jelly roll pan or rimmed cookie sheet with nonstick spray coating and set aside.

Place the popcorn in a large ceramic or glass bowl; set aside.

In a 1-cup measue or similar microwave-safe bowl, combine the caramels, syrup, and water. Cover with wax paper and microwave on high power for 40 seconds. Stir. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds until the caramels are completely melted.

Being very careful to keep fingers away from the hot syrup, slowly pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn, stirring with a large wooden spoon to coat evenly. Spread the popcorn evenly on the prepared baking pan. Bake the popcorn for 4 to 6 minutes, until the syrup hardens slightly.

Cool before serving, or store tightly covered at room temperature. Leftover popcorn will keep for 4 to 5 days.

Makes 10 Servings (1 cup each).

Per Serving: 53 Cal; 1 g Total Fat; 11 g Carb; 1 mg Cholesterol; 59 mg Sodium; 1 g Fiber; 1 g Protein; 6 g Sugars.
Exchanges: 1/2 Carbohydrate.

I am allergic to tomatoes and my husband is lactose intolerant. We were looking for healthy snacks that don't involve dairy products or tomato products.
