I Love Popcorn! Microwave Popcorn Popper

I've been trying to find snacks that I love that are healthier for me.   At the first of the year, I bought this Nordic Ware Quick Pop Single Serve Popper.  I love it!!
I make popcorn 3 or 4 times a week now.  It uses 1/4 cup of popcorn with no oil and takes about 3 minutes to pop.  It did take a few times to learn how long to cook it in my microwave so that most of the kernels cooked but did not overcook.  I use Orville Redenbacher white corn.  It is delicious.  You can find this popcorn in most grocery stores.  You can use any loose kernel popcorn in the popper.

Healthy Eating for the New Year

A new year is a perfect time to make a few changes.   I want to find foods that I love that are healthy and easy.
My first change -

I love fruits and vegetables so this just means I have to make a conscious effort to have them in the house and ready to eat.

I have a box of Red River Grapefruit, so I just added a banana, strawberries, and a kiwi to the grapefruit.  It was delicious with breakfast.
