7 Healthy Snacks for Couch Potatoes

  • 2 of 5


1. Popcorn with Nutritional Yeast, Lime Juice, & Paprika

When popcorn isn’t dripping with butter and salt, it’s a healthy alternative to higher-calorie snacks. There are several ways to prepare healthy popcorn, but this is one of my favorites. You’ll see more ideas below.

Ingredients:
• 1/2 cup plain popcorn
• 4-5 tablespoons nutritional yeast
• 1/2 lime, juiced
•  1-2 dashes paprika

Instructions:
1. Follow instructions for popcorn. Pour into bowl.
2. Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat evenly.

Other Great Popcorn Topping Ideas:
2. Soy sauce and nutritional yeast
3. Agave syrup or honey
4. Dried Italian herbs (0regano, basil, rosemary, etc.) and olive oil

Sweet potato fries brushed with coconut oil and baked, then a bit of sea salt added, yum!

thanks, this looks like a great idea for those overripe bananas that I tend to freeze and forget about.

the popcorn one sounds interesting, not a big fan of it myself though! carrot sticks and home-made dips; and cutting up root veg thinly, like sweet potato etc; and making your own crisps thanks!

I test drove the ice cream, one with peanut butter, and one without, I love them both. I will try the corn chips, this would certainly be less fat!
