Since life has been a little too dramatic around here for my taste, Im just going to share a quick word about popcorn and then I will blog again later when I can get my house back in order.
I’m a girl who loves her snacks. Popcorn happens to be one of my favorites. However, about a month ago I was reaching for the popcorn in the cabinet when a little light bulb went off. *ding!* My popcorn habit was a really wasteful one. Now, I’m all about saving the Earth, but I wasn’t about to give up my beloved popcorn. Think about it, when you open the bag you throw away the plastic around it, then you eat your popcorn and throw away the bag. Once all the bags are going you throw away the box they came in. That’s a whole mess of waste! So I’ve bannished bagged popcorn from my kitchen and I bought an electric popcorn poppper. The initial cost is more than your standard box of popcorn, but in the end you’re generating a lot less waste. I chose the electric kind because the microwave kind still have something you’ll have to throw away eventually. So I can still enjoy my popcorn and feel like I’ve done something for the Earth. Not to mention, you can create whatever flavor popcorn you like and control the amount of sodium, fat, etc. you intake!
