I was feeling bad about eating a boat load of caramel corn the other day (and a few cookies). I admit the sugar/corn syrup was a lot, but the choice of popped corn was good. I'm down almost a pound!!!198
Instead of microwave popcorn which often has a lot of fat, chemicals for butter-flavor, and is quite expensive, it's easy to pop corn on the stove. You don't need a special popcorn popper. Just a covered pot, two tablespoons of canola oil, and 1/4 cup of popcorn over medium-high heat. Remove from heat as soon as the popping almost stops. Salt and Enjoy !
Measure out your snacks and put them in the little snack-size bags that are available. One serving of animal crackers, usually about 16, fit perfectly. Or a cup of air-popped corn. A serving of Goldfish!
You can also fit a serving of nuts into a plastic Easter egg!
However you do it, and whatever your dry snack, you will be prepared to grab one and go.
