RECIPE: Salted Caramel Cappuccino Popcorn
Every year around the holidays I get the holiday munchies, and if I don't have the right kinds of snacks available, I end up overindulging on the wrong kinds of food that tend to cause weight gain.
Now, I plan for the holiday munchies and make sure I surround myself with healthier foods that boost my metabolism versus slow it down by kicking me out of ketosis.
Even though this recipe is clean, I take one (1) Keto Carb Edge and one (1) Cutting Edge 1-2 hours before to prevent my blood sugar from spiking, which for me can be disastrous for my over 50-year-old body. It could trigger more hunger and cravings, which is exactly what I want to avoid.
For every not-so-healthy craving, I've got an even more delicious recipe that's also nutritious and good for metabolism!
Instead of limiting myself to a once-a-year treat, I freely enjoy this popcorn that's covered with Salted Caramel and Chocolate Truffle protein that's lower in calories, carbs, and fats than most protein bars!
The truth is I like to eat popcorn on our family movie night. There is something about it that makes it extra special. I do use a few shortcuts on family movie night due to the lack of time. Lasting weight loss requires a lifestyle, not a diet; and for me, it needs to be fast, easy, and realistic. So, I hope you like this as much as I do. It's my #2 go-to snack after my #1 Lean Bar with clean cappuccino, of course!
So, the next time you're craving for something salty and sweet, replace the not-so-healthy snacks with this instead.
Serving size for popcorn is one cup, air popped. This recipe is low carb, cleaner keto, and metabolic boosting because it includes our popular best-selling Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein Powder and five grams of prebiotic fiber to blunt blood sugar levels and improve every aspect of your health, in addition to boosting your sluggish metabolism 25%.
If you remembered to take your carb and fat-blocking Keto Carb and Cutting Edge nutritional supplements, you'll block even more carbs and prevent fat storage, should you end up not using the right popcorn (I’m guilty of this :). You get to eat a little more and absorb less.
I like to make my own air-popped popcorn for this recipe. It’s a very simple process and doesn’t take very long. This way I know exactly what’s in my popcorn and the leanest popcorn possible, free of saturated fats and the chemicals you might find in the microwave bagged stuff.
Plus, popping it at home smells awesome and excites everyone... even the fur babies. It’s fast and easy, and you can also make clean popcorn in your microwave if you're short on time. You can use store-bought skinny popcorn too.
No protein powder... no biggie! If you don’t have LynFit Complete Protein Powder, or you don't want to use protein powder, that’s okay. You can substitute/use use (3 tbsp.) of your favorite unsweetened cocoa powder. It's leaner and lighter than the seemingly healthier cacao powder. Sprinkle with a little Stevia in its place.
- (1 cup) Air-popped popcorn (light microwave popcorn can be substituted)
- (1 tbsp.) LynFit Metabolic Boosting Salted Caramel Complete Protein Powder
- (1 tbsp.) LynFit Metabolic Boosting Chocolate Truffle Complete Protein Powder
- Coconut or vegetable spray oil
Place the popcorn in a large mug or a salad bowl (better than the jumbo we often grab). Spray the popcorn with coconut oil spray and make sure it's covered completely, so the protein powder sticks to the popped kernels. Toss and EAT! You can garnish with cinnamon for a super-healthy snack, or on weekends I like to add a few small chocolate chips if I happen to have them lying around :)
The popcorn pairs perfectly with my Cappuccino For Your Metabolism!
