Posh Popcorn

We've all heard about the 3 pm slump from those very annnoying ads on tv!!! But we all probably have that point in our day where we want to reach out and grab something to munch on.

It is important to remember to use calories wisely. Eating a bag of low fat crisps is good for a treat if you are craving a savoury snack however there are more nutritious snacks for about the same calorie value. A healthier, more natural food would be a small handful, like 15 pistachio nuts or a small portion of wholegrain kelkin popcorn. These foods have no added flavourings or preservatives, a lower sodium content and a much higher fibre content.
This posh popcorn will totally satisfy that savoury craving and keep you fuller for longer.

P.S. Portion control is essential here.

This posh popcorn is an ideal snack to have - keep it sealed in a freezer bag and it makes an ideal snack while on the go !!
Kelkin Wholegrain Popcorn Kernels

Posh Popcorn
Serves 1
25g Kelkin wholegrain popcorn kernels
1/2 tsp canola / olive oil
5g (1tsp) grated fresh parmesan
tiny pinch freshly ground black pepper and salt

Heat the oil in the bottom of a small pan. Add the popcorn kernels. Place the lid on top. After 1 min  lift off the heat and shake to coat all the kernels in oil. Turn the heat to medium and allow the popcorn to pop.
Remove from the heat and add seasoning and parmesan while the popcorn is still hot.

Enjoy any time, any place!!!
