Popcorn and Trail Mix

Popcorn is a great inexpensive snack. You can cook it in a hot air popper and have a low calorie snack for very little money. The calories go on when you use oil, butter, or margarine on it. If calories aren't a problem, then you can dressing it with melted butter, Parmesan cheese, or brewers yeast.


Another fairly inexpensive but nutritious snack is a trail mix made from sunflower seed kernels, raisins, raw almonds, or cashews. Nuts and raisins can be found inexpensively at Costco or Sam's Club.

Popcorn can also be made in the microwave in a paper lunch bag with no oil/butter. Watch carefully.

If the treat is seldom, and calories are not too much of a concern; sprinkle M&Ms on top of the popcorn after the popcorn has lost some of it's 'heat'...(you don't want to melt the M&Ms...)You'll find a pleasant chocolate taste along the way as you're enjoying the salty popcorn...!!!!! My kids won't eat popcorn without the M&Ms...
