I would be lying if I told you my love affair with popcorn doesn’t run strong. If you love something, you should eat it. No guilt or concern attached. Of course, I am a big believer in moderation. I’m not going to go ham on ten cups of popcorn. My digestion would be a mess but I’ve learned over the years that restricting any food group from my diet would be a huge mistake! I mean, other than dairy because my whole existence turns into a mess when I consume that stuff. My favorite way to eat popcorn recently has been this Cinnamon spiced popcorn!
