Healthy Snack: Cheesy Vegan High Protein Popcorn

June 17, 2015
I truly love to eat mindlessly at the end of the day. It is part of my addiction samskara. I go in to a blackout, and indulge in a food that is usually not raw broccoli. I come out of my blackout, and think, "I did it again! I ate all of the cookies!" This is where my popcorn gets fancy. Popcorn is my go-to for guilt-free mindless eating. I experiment with all kinds of flavors to satisfy a myriad of cravings. Most recently, I have been playing with soya power--powdered soy milk. It is unrefined, and unhydroginated. Though soy should not be consumed at high levels, it does provide plenty of protein and lots of fiber. I also add spirulina for some extra wholesome goodness that includes more protein, amino acids, and omega 3. The nutritional yeast provides a complete protein, Vitamin Bs, and tastes delicious. From here, I add spices to create the flavors. This one includes curry powder. Enjoy this recipe, especially if your popcorn is a coping mechanism. He he.
