Nutritional yeast is one of the ingredients that you’ll see in the popcorn recipe. It has become a trend within the health world lately, especially for those who are dairy free. Comments have been made that it tastes similar to parmesan. So, for all the cheese lovers out there, this may satisfy that craving while eliminating dairy and feeding your body vitamin B, proteins, and fiber with only a small amount. You won’t feel guilty about eating this snack!
Then of course, you have your fruit salsa which contains natural sugars and antioxidants that our bodies need. Fruits are an essential part of our diets and MyPlate recommends fruits be ¼ of your plate. This recipe is a great way to satisfy that requirement while also satiating your sweet tooth. Enjoy!
