Based on some very unscientific research, I have found that most people struggle with making mindful and healthy decisions concerning afternoon hunger pains. This is the time when people most often visit the vending machine or give into the cupcakes that are in the office kitchen, which in turn creates feeling of self sabotage and regret. Here is my solution: have a snack readily available that is satisfying enough that you don't feel like you are missing out. If you hate celery or string cheese, then don't eat it just becasue you think you are "supposed to." Pick a snack that is healthy but satisfies you. I'm sure that this snack recipe for Rosemary Nutty Popcorn will fullfill all your wildest snack dreams. It is filled with healthy fats and big flavor, plus it looks pretty. As you can see by the photo, this snack is great for gifting, entertaining, or just keeping in a pretty jar for your own pleasure.
Rosemary Nutty Popcorn
1 bag microwave popcorn
5 sprigs fresh Rosemary
2 cups mixed nuts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1. Place nuts, rosemary leaves of two sprigs and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir until nuts start browning and the rosemary is fried.
2. Pop the popcorn.
3. Toss nut mixture and popcorn in a bowl with the remaining rosemary.
4. Serve warm or keep tightly sealed. This will keep for about 5 days.
