I add one tablespoon of Coconut oil after it is popped then sprinkle on 3 tbsp of nutritional yeast and give it a good stir to evenly distribute the oil and yeast. The yeast gives a nice cheesy taste and the nutritional yeast is full of B vitamins and protein. The coconut oil is a healthy fat. I eat three cups when I first pop it, then measure what is left into plastic bags so I have a quick healthy snack on hand.

Popcorn is one of the healthiest foods anyone can eat. It has large amount of calories, protein, minerals and vitamins… and all-around food
Popcorn supplies roughage and bulk, Eating popcorn is good way to vary a diet because it contains many valuable nutrients & popcorn ranks as a high-protein food. Have 3 cups of air-popped popcorn, no butter or margarine, no salt..sprinkle with parm or romano which has protein or cinnamon to flavor.

Use chili powder to flavor the popcorn
Use grlic powder to flavor the popcorn as this will give the popcorn enough flavor so that you don't miss the regular salt and butter
Drizzle the popcorn with dark chocolate. Microwave dark chocolate chips and pour it over the popcorn...dark cocoa is healthy.

You might even want to try taco seasoning

My favorite way to prepare popcorn is to put 2 T of popcorn kernels into a brown paper sack (the small "lunch bag" type bags). Fold the top over about an inch or two. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, or until it stops popping. Pour popped corn into a bowl and spray with Pam or whatever pan spray you like. Then sprinkle on whatever kinds of toppings/flavorings you like. My favorite is to add salt, cumin, and chili powder, but you could also add splenda and cinnamon if you want something sweet. Makes the perfect serving size!

I used to make this for my kids, and still a family favorite
Place one bag of marshmallows in large bowl and microwave about 2 minutes until puffy
Add popped popcorn and stir well until ll popcorn is covered
make into small balls and place on wax paper. If you wish, top with sprinkles, cinnamon sugar or whatever flavor you like.

Have you tried the Cinnamon sugar popcorn before. It sounds really good and I'm dying to try it. But I don't have a air popcorn popper yet, I'm going to get one as soon as I can. Thanks for the recipe.

here is how I make my popcorn in a popcorn pot on top of the stove. Make 5 cups 110 cal.

1 T. canola oil
1/4 tsp butter flavor popcorn salt (or more, try butter flavoring instead for more butter taste)
black pepper to taste (I use 1/4 tsp). Go light with the butter salt & pepper until you know how you like it.

blend the oil, butter salt and pepper together to get even distribution on the Kernels of Corn. When the oil mixture is hot add 1/2 cup of popcorn. emoticon

what about using some cinnamon and splenda mixed together shaken over.

Or measure a tablespoon of maple syrup out and dip the popcorn so it doesnt get soggy.

I used to sprinkle with Mrs Dash or the popcorn butter flavoring. I have never tried to sweeten it before though.

I am looking for some ideas for flavoring air popped popcorn. I need to have single serving ideas because I sometimes don't have a "stop button" and since I am single, nobody to share with. Would really appreciate some ideas for "sweetness"...such as carmel corn, etc. Thank you.
