Being hungry is one of the main reasons that make us fall into those sugar cravings that provoke the need to eat refined food load of sugars and starches. Believe me, I put myself as a guinea pig to experiment enough and discover ‘the body’ is not prepared to make the right food choices and is not selective either while coping with a hungry-empty stomach. And that’s when foods lacking of nutrition make their way to our mouth and can make the cicle of sugar and bad carbs cravings out of control + never ending. In a nutshell eating foods or products loads of refined sugar, just make you crave ‘more’ sugary foods + snacks.
Whenever you’re on the way of trying to eat more nourishing foods (and also snacks) or just wanting to try new foods and flavours, let me say that just having the right snack at the right time of the day can make a ‘HUGE + SATISFYING’ difference in your battle against sugar + processed foods cravings. There’s no need of depriving yourself of the foods that you like and enjoy eating is simply the way that ‘these foods + snacks’ are prepared! So do you think that having a homemade snack such us ‘POPCORN’  can give you the motivation to start cheating on processed foods? (…) May be you’re thinking; Whaaat?! Oh, Aldy you just lost your mind, didn’t you!? Ha, ha Well may be (?) no just playing with you! I haven’t lost my mind…not yet (I think ;)

However, let me tell you why Popcorn can push you into taking more heathier choices when the hunger and cravings start to crawl your stomach looking for nurture and more satisfying foods. First a Big + Fat secret about Popcorn and the ‘amazing grain’ called Popping Corn; (trumpets, please!) > Popping corn is a whole grain, has a lot fiber in it and is a very powerful antioxidant. But unfortunately once refined and artificial flavors are added to it, all those ‘amazing grain powers’ are ‘destroyed’ and having popcorn as a snack becomes not the best option anymore. Ok, now that you know the positive benefits of plain popcorn, are you ready to start Making Popcorn while dancing the hula-hula, ok may be not that last part but definitely start making popcorn, yes?! Finally, you can eat as much popcorn as you like, just make sure to incorporate whole, natural flavors that elevate the potential and properties of it. 
And to give you even more fun + motivation let me share with you my favorite way of preparing homemade popcorn, yes the most incredible + delicious warm + yellowish popcorn.  I’ll give you The Turmeric + Garlic Popcorn! Not only the spices added to this popcorn make it wonderful in flavor but also the healthy benefits of turmeric and garlic give the absolute WOW factor to it! >Turmeric is an excelent source of vitamin C and > garlic is incredible to boost the immune sistem. So there you have it! PS: Don’t worry about the garlic is not overpowering at all, but if you prefer you can just make it without garlic (but it’s tastes AMAZINGLY great with the garlic). Now over and out to eat some turmeric popcorn and watch a movie!
