Don't spend extra money on microwave popcorn, which tends to be salty and have a chemical aftertaste. Put a ¼ cup of kernels into a brown paper bag & microwave for 3 minutes or until all popped.

Almond butter and chocolate come together with popcorn to make a snack worthy of any night of tv binge watching.

Popcorn is the perfect snack. It's low in calories, but high in fiber, B vitamins, manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc and phosphorous. And, it's crunchy hull is rich in polyphenols that protect against heart disease, cancer and premature aging. Pairing it with almond butter gives you a more steady flow of energy.
