Salted Coconut Sugar Popcorn

12-Apr-2014

Popcorn would have to be my guilty pleasure and when I found out plain popcorn actually has many great health benefits I couldn’t help but get creative in trying to create a nutritious snack that incorporated it. Popcorn contains antioxidants called polyphenols that prevent damage to cells and have disease-fighting properties. Coconut sugar is a completely natural sweetener, which has a countless number of health benefits. Its low glycemic index can help promote excellent health. It also contains lots of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Finally one of my absolute favorites, coconut oil. The health benefits of incorporating coconut oil into your diet are far reaching. It can not only increase your immunity and help with weight loss, but it can also promote digestion as well as good skin and hair. Combining all these beneficial ingredients into one quick and easy recipe I came up with this sweet and salty snack full of complex flavors. Enjoy!

So I thought I’d share a few of my fave superfood fixes (that are very easily mixable with other things).
