How to Make Organic Chocolate Popcorn

One of my favorite movie snacks is Chocolate Popcorn. No popcorn is as good as Organic popcorn cooked in Organic Olive Oil.

Corn is naturally gluten free.

Problem these days is that most corn crops are controlled by big corporate conglomerates and the corn is genetically modified, which is something your body does not want.

Your body also does not want all the spooky ingredients in microwave popcorn.

If you must buy pre-packaged easy-to-make stuff, read the ingredients on all the products offered on the shelf in that section in your store; compare them against each other. Try to get foods that have the least ingredients and that you understand what those ingredients are. Some non-Organic products are most definitely better or worse than others, you will see.

What you want is to get Organic foods whenever possible.

If you don’t have a Whole Foods Market or maybe a Safeway (click to see their Organic and gluten free products), you can also buy Organic Popcorn in small or bulk quantities online through various outlets such as Eden Foods or Nuts Online.

MAKING ORGANIC POPCORN THE OLD FASHIONED WAY

Once you have your Organic Popcorn, put a thin layer of Olive Oil in a deep pot.Then put a thin layer of corn kernels, only 1 kernel deep. Once it starts popping, it will fill up the entire pot and then some, so be careful not to put too much.

Turn the heat on about medium. It will get hot fast. Read more

Hopefully, the show will be able to maintain its autonomy despite the pressures of big business money.

Today’s show covered GMOs, genetically modified foods and crops.

On Dr. Oz was guest Jeffrey Smith who has a great website dedicated to helping you eat safer healthier non-GMO foods.

In this article is information from his site, which I have placed here because you really should know this stuff, but please go to his site nongmoshoppingguide.com and read more!

What’s the risk of eating GMO foods?

Jeffrey’s site has some frightening information unknown to the general public.

“Soon after GM soy was introduced to the UK, soy allergies skyrocketed by 50 percent.”
