Finding healthy family snacks, other then fruits and veggies, is a never ending task! Here are a few of my favorites.
And last, but only because it is our favorite....homemade popcorn. Please never buy microwave popcorn....it is a disgrace to popcorn. All you have to do is get a big pot with a lid, put 3 tablespoons of organic olive oil in and turn the heat on high. Let the oil heat up until it is steaming and then add in 1/2 of a cup of organic popcorn kernels. Keeping the pot over the flame, shake continuously until almost all of the kernels pop and the kernels slowly stop popping. Pour into a big bowl. Take about 1-1 1/2 tablespoons of organic unsalted butter and melt it in the same hot pot you just used, without any flame. Pour evenly over popcorn. Top with sea salt....and you are all set! Once you have this you will never go back. My husband doesn't like popcorn...but he loves this! :) (Please note: I use a nonstick pan with a glass lid. I have tried using a regular pan but it gets too hot and everything burns...)
