DIY Popcorn

Popcorn is my go-to for snacking: it’s healthy and fun to make, especially when you pop the kernels in a pot instead of a microwave. On top of that, popcorn has a bunch of health benefits like fiber and antioxidants. I love spices and condiments, so I started to play around with different sweet and savory toppings. Here are a few that I really love.
