WEDNESDAY: NATURAL LIVING
Protecting the Earth is more than just recycling and reducing carbon emissions. It’s also about living a healthy lifestyle, focusing especially on what you put into your body. The Earth can’t be healthy if its inhabitants (us) are not. Remember: Act locally, think globally. (Okay, that’s enough preaching for one day – but its Earth Day tomorrow and I’m jazzed and can’t resist.)
Although, I am known to add flax seed, spinach and carrots in my wheat free oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies, this recipe isn’t as hard-core as some of my others, such as these raw food recipes.
It’s simple, yummy and good for you.
I normally eye ball it when I make it, but I’ll give you some rough measurements and you can take give or take accordingly.
½ cup of popcorn kernels
1 ½ tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of honey
2 handfuls of pecans
1. Air-pop the popcorn.
2. In a saucepan, melt the butter and mix in the honey and pecans.
3. Place ½ of the popcorn in a glass dish.
4. Drizzle the nuts, melted butter and honey over the popcorn.
5. Add the rest of the popcorn on top.
6. Mix it all together with your hands.
7. Put it in the oven at 350 degrees for seven minutes, mix it up, and then put it in again for another seven minutes. This sort of caramelizes the honey.
It’s so yummy!
