5. Rosemary Garlic Popcorn and Pumpkin Seeds

Not all popcorn is unhealthy — just the buttery movie theater version. Make your own popcorn and turn it into a more filling snack by adding protein-rich pumpkin seeds.

Rosemary Garlic Popcorn and Pumpkin Seeds Preparation time: 10 min.

Ingredients:
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 ¼ oz popcorn kernel (uncooked)

  • 2 tsp rosemary (fresh)
  • 1 oz pumpkin seeds

Directions:
  1. Put the oil into a large metal pan on medium heat. Place 3 individual kernels in the pan and cover.
  2. Once you hear them pop, uncover and add the rest of the kernels so that they form a single layer in the pan.
  3. Cover and shake the pan a little to cover all the kernels with oil.
  4. Once you hear it pops intensely, shake the pan every 15 seconds to help the unpopped kernels to pop and prevent popcorn from burning.
  5. When it's not popping anymore, uncover and put the popcorn into a bowl.
  6. Top with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add chopped rosemary (optional) and pumpkin seeds.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
