Default Sweet & Salty Snack

I am new at trying to follow a low carb style of eating. And it is hard to come up with snack idea's. What do you think about this one?

I seen this and wondered how good? So, I made it, it taste good, and not a whole lot of carbs? (I don't think so?) And it satisfied my sweet tooth.



Chocolate covered Popcorn
Pop some Pop Corn
1 tablespoon of melted butter ( depends on how much you want, I used a tablespoon)
coco~ 1 teaspoon
splenda~depending on how sweet, I used 2 packs of splenda
*Mix splenda and coco in the melted butter and pour over popcorn

Sounds great ... if I could tolerate popcorn. Maybe I could manage 1/2 cup, but sadly that's not enough for this former Popcorn Queen.

The recipe does sound good, but sadly, I'm with you Moon. This former popcorn queen isn't even going to try to see if a half cup or more likely a quarter cup is safe to eat. That would just be cruel to punish myself like that.

Corn - including popcorn - is a terribly high-carb food. One dinky cupful of plain dry air-popped popcorn has 6g of carbs, and that would be about three mouthfuls at our house.

What you could do is use that chocolate coating on some nuts . . . almonds maybe? Pecans? Walnuts?

Hello I wonder if you know of any of the sweetners which don't make you go to the toilet as often as canderel does ,its actually for cooking but as I don't have sugar at all. I would like a replacement in the kitchen as well as I want to lessen the 3 teaspoons amount the boys have in their coffee .

Of all the sugar alcohols, Erythritol is the most well tolerated. That is because it is processed mostly in your kidneys instead of your intestines.

Otherwise are you able to use Stevia? That has no effect on one's digestion and you can sweeten drinks with a very tiny amount.

When I am feeling really wild and free, I eat 2 or maybe THREE popcorn kernels from my son's bowl.
