So I love to sit down with my family and watch a film (daughter is obsessed with pirates of the Caribbean at the mo), we always have a laugh and with me and my husband working full time and our daughter now in nursery I value our time together more.
Anyway....we always have a snack of some kind we can all pick at.
Now we all love popcorn but my god some of it is soooo bad (obviously it’s the added flavourings).
I was speaking to my father in law about it and he said he had a popcorn machine that just used hot air.
I was intrigued so borrowed it and tonight we got our film ready (pirates obvs) and made our popcorn using the popcorn maker.
When I searched online for the calorie amount of air popped popcorn I found it to be around 31calories per cup 🙀🙀
Maybe it’s common knowledge to others but it was a real shocker for me.
My daughter loves helping to make it and with no added crap on it I feel a little easier when she eats so much lol
I don’t think I’m gonna give it my father in law back!! No more microwave crap or paying for skinny popcorn that’s still covered in sugar.
On Sunday night we are gonna make popcorn and I’m going to use my pb2 as a topping 😁 or maybe even a sprinkling of whey protein powder.
Just thought I would share this as I’m still pretty shocked how low in calories it is.
