Garlic and nutritional yeast (it has kind of a cheesy taste).

Thanks ya'll!

I have never heard of nutritional yeast but if it is cheesy tasting, I wanna know where to get it so I can try it :D

Nutritional yeast can be found at health food stores. Generally in the bulk bins (which means you can try a small amount to taste). It is full of B vitamins and can be added to various foods. Vegans tend to be quite fond of it. Tings (a commercial cheetos like product) are made with nutritional yeast and they are very good, too good.

For my own reasons, I tend to stay away from cheese, especially the past few months but this makes me happy that maybe I can eat something that at least tastes like cheese. Thanks nelie!! :hug:

As I said, it is cheeselike, kind of like in the fake cheese way so if you expect it to taste just like cheese, it won't. It is kind of reminiscent of cheese though and I haven't had cheese in nearly 2 years so things cheeselike are based on an older memory :)

The chili powder with lime sounds good. I think I'm going to plan to have popcorn on friday.. :)

I just have to ask, how do you use the lime juice? Just pour it on there or..?

mandalinn82

Yep, just a bit. I make sure to sprinkle it pretty slowly and toss the popcorn a lot or it can concentrate on certain pieces. Then I sprinkle salt and chili powder on and it sticks to the lime-y parts.

Once, I sprayed on some i can't believe it's not butter spray, then sprinkled on a tsp of chocolate PB2. It was goooood.

Way back when microwave popcorn came out, there used to be a Orville Redenbacher Sour Cream and Onion popcorn. You'd make the popcorn and then shake a little packet of powerdery goodness over it. Of course it was all the high-cal stuff, but I would love to find a way to doctor up my 100 cal m'wave popcorn to have that Sour Cream and Onion flavor. I've tried sprinkling Parmesean cheese over it but it doesn't stick because there is no fat on the popcorn....I just end up with plain popcorn and a little pile of cheese at the bottom!

We like Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy. I am sure her other blends would be nice. My favorite way to have popcorn as a snack in the summer is to munch on it along with a hot pickled pepper and some ripe tomatoes. Sometimes I get the deli to do a nice nutty Swiss extra extra thin- so one slice is barely caloric and it take a bit of this, bite of that, and my p-corn stays crunchy.

Well today I made big arse bowl of air popped popcorn and I drizzled on a T of coconut oil, (for my todays fat) and OMG, pure heaven, this so tasted even better than movie theatre popcorn & way better for you! FYI, I just incorporated coconut oil into my lifestyle 5 days ago and I am so enjoying it and the coconut popcorn is amazing, try it you won't be disappointed. Oh yeah I used extra virgin coconut oil, health food stores sell it.

I spray my popcorn with a little bit of that butter flavored cooking spray and sprinkle it wish Lawry's Seasoning Salt. Need the spray to make the seasoning stick. YUM!

I buy the Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning powder. It is 5 cals per serving, and I just love "ranch" popcorn :D (I get the big bottle of it at Sam's Club)

I can't do microwave popcorn as it could kill me haha. Seriously, I react to it, so when I do have popcorn I take kernels and put them in a paper bag, nuke it, which is fine as it doesn't have that crap the microwave brands have( i react to something in those brands).

Then I spray a little olive oil and a touch of salt, then you could do lemon pepper or onion powder, or nutritional yeast if you like a cheesy flavor. I like mine a bit plain, so I usually just do a bit of olive oil and sea salt.

Great tips! I find that the 100 cal bags can be a bit bland. Definitely will try some of these suggestions!
