Crunch Time

 Every year millions of people make a resolution to eat healthier, join a gym or exercise more.

This year, I did that same thing. I have been pretty good except for the “in-between” times.

After your crunches at the gym, try crunching on this Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Popcorn recipe from the Popcorn Board. Visit for more healthy snack recipes.

Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Popcorn

  • 4 quarts popped popcorn
  • 2-3 teaspoons jalapeno green pepper sauce (or tabasco; more to taste)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (substitute cheese with brewer’s yeast for a low fat alternative)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt

1. Place popcorn in a large serving bowl.

2. Sprinkle popcorn with jalapeno sauce, Parmesan cheese and garlic salt; toss and serve immediately.

Yield: 4 quarts, 16 servings (1 cup each)
