The Guilt-Free Fit Girl Snack of 2015

I don’t know what it is about finding either light OR healthy  recipes (yes, there is a big difference), that makes me so excited. It’s almost like finding a great sale. I know ideally ‘everything in moderation’, but sometimes you just want to throw the ‘portion-control police’ out the window.

This is WHY I’m popcorn OBSESSED and deeming these light fluffy fiber filled clouds of yum, the ‘favorite #fitgirl food’ trend of 2015 !

Seriously, browse through my recipes, and you’ll see the theme this year of popcorn in so many ways – it’s Crazy!

From the endless ways to dress it up, ‘style it’ if you will, serve it and even add more health benefits (fiber, protein) without the calories and fat!

This week I took my popcorn ‘chef’ qualities to new levels with this Guilt-Free Fit Girl Snack of 2015:

 Garlic’n’Herb Popcorn Crunch

herbngarlic popcorn


No-stick cooking spray

1 egg white

2-3 tbsn Garlic’n’Herb mix (can use garlic powder and fresh herbs or dried herbs and garlic)

3 qts. (12 c.) air-popped popcorn


Heat oven to 325 degrees.

Spray 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan with cooking spray. In small bowl, beat egg white until soft peaks form. Add garlic and herb mix, beating until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute.
