sugar-free-popcorn-recipe

I’ve realized I may be taking my popcorn obsession a bit too far.

But that’s okay.

I’m loving the creativity of taking a little organic corn kernel and whipping it into a sweet (and healthy) sugar-free treat. It kinda’ makes me feel like a kid again.

Let’s just say I have the perfect kid-friendly, adult-approved snack or dessert for you. It’s so fun to make and quite simple.

Here’s a hint: buy organic popcorn. I know you already know that corn is a supper duper highly GMO food so anything you eat that’s got corn in it- steer clear of conventional and reach for organic.

Consider this your summer go-to nibble when you are ready to bite into a sugary chocolate bar and you know it’s not going to make you feel good afterwards.

This popcorn is going to rock your world, fill you up and possibly have you serve it as a dessert for your upcoming Memorial Day weekend BBQ.

Yes, popcorn for dessert is healthy and totally acceptable.

Trust me.

I know.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
