A Devastating Discovery for my Diet

I like predictability. In my toddler driven and what seems like an uncontrollable life, the more that is the same everyday the better. I can truly autopilot most things and good nutrition is important to me. I literally eat the same thing for breakfast every morning and don’t tire of it.

The title of this post is pretty misleading because in reality, I don’t diet. My motto when it comes to food is everything in moderation. If I want to eat a pint of ice cream in one sitting, I will; if I want to have a kale salad for lunch, I will. I just don’t go to either extreme on a regular basis. Right, so eating a pint of ice cream in one sitting is not at all moderate….but, over the course of time it can be because I only do that on very rare occasions-like when I’m pregnant and couch surfing for four months while my husband goes back and forth between California and Brazil.

ANYWAY…on to my discovery of SWEET POPCORN!

Here in Manaus, popcorn is an easy to come by snack food that isn’t all that expensive. We eat it fairly often and finding new ways to change it up is always welcome. We’re partial to the old standby of just a little salt, or grating fresh Parmesan cheese on top. Especially because it’s easy…but this, THIS is delicious and great when you don’t have much else in the house but need to cure a sweet tooth (of which I have many).

  1. I don’t know whether to apologise or celebrate that this has been a great find for you! On the one hand, it’s easy to eat lots of this stuff….and that is a bit of a disaster. On the other hand I’ve lived in a country where bought snacks were stale and expensive because of the consequences of shipping such things from Australia, so I know that specific dilemma. So I think lets go with celebrating yummy, cheap, accessible snacks….and alternate them with healthy things like fruit 😉

    Glad you enjoyed the popcorn.
