How Can Coconut Oil & Maple Syrup Popcorn Make You Feel Great?
Sweetly Healthy SnackHeavy constitutions like Kapha can enjoy light sweets like Coconut Maple Popcorn without fear of gaining weight. Just go light on the salt to utilize the drying qualities of corn to feel light and even stimulate weight loss.
Popcorn & Your DigestionPopcorn absorbs fluids from your body. For heavy constitutions, this quality can be beneficial. On the other hand, deficient Vata types become dehydrated and thirsty after munching on dry snacks. Popcorn dries the colon in particular as it continues to absorb much needed moisture, leading to constipation.
By adding salt to this recipe, you can keep your body hydrated while enjoying crunchy popcorn. Wherever salt appears in the body, water follows. Salt encourages secretions in membranes of your GI tract, all the way to your colon. Thus salt promotes good digestion and elimination of the bowels. Coconut oil is a healthy fat that adds nourishment to this otherwise dry snack. Oil is necessary in a treat like popcorn to coat the rough edges of each kernel- they're a little rough on your insides without it.
For the Kid in You (or your Family)Coconut Maple Popcorn is a treat you can feel good about offering the little one in your life, or in your heart. This low sugar snack is sweet enough for kids to feel like they are having candy! And you can feel confident that they won't be sent into a spin of sugar madness thanks to mineral rich maple syrup- it digests more slowly than other sweeteners. It's a favorite in Ayurveda for that reason!
