If you're a vegan and need some snack ideas, FitSugar reader Crystalinsf has you covered.
Being a vegan I'm always searching for "normal" snacks I can enjoy with the rest of the world and by normal, I mean snacks that are naturally, born vegan. Organic pretzels, a bowl of mixed fruit (this pic features pineapple and nectarines), and my special vegan popcorn are the perfect healthy snack we can all enjoy. You get something sweet, something juicy, and definitely something salty. My special popcorn is a favorite everywhere I go and a great healthy alternative to the calorie filled buttered popcorn you buy at the stores. I buy Newman’s Own or Whole Foods Brand unbuttered, unsalted popcorn (360 calories versus 2000 calories). Once popped, I simply drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the warm popcorn and add a bit of sea salt. Seriously, ammmazing! All my non-vegan friends can vouch for this unbelievably tasty snack.
P.S. My mom always told me the trick to popping tasty popcorn, is to take the bag out of the microwave once the popping slows down — never put it in for the full time. And all microwaves are different, so keep your peepers open.
Have you tried it yet? What do you think?
