This week has been challenging for me and for a lot of people around me. It’s as if something was in the air; things that no longer could be procrastinated came to surface and needed to be addressed. Through sharing these times and experiences I feel we can support each other and gather the courage to take the bull by its horns!
In my life there are a lot of changes in the air and even though I like change and I can feel the excitement it’s also a bit scary and unsettling, especially when it’s not clear what the changes will look like. There are several options and some of them depend on decisions I have no control over. I was waiting for the Universe to give me signs on what to do but when I didn’t get any I had an epiphany. I thought “why am I in a depending position ? No one else can make a decision for what I want my future to be like. I should make the decision regardless of what the answer is that I’m waiting for” And so I did; I asked my heart what it desired and when I clearly felt what it was I wanted I made some powerful decisions that opened up the road again! It feels great to take charge again
If you’re also dealing with something similar, I hope this might help you make a decision. By making a decision everything will change even things that are not directly related. And remember that when you make decisions from your heart you will never regret it!
MAKE YOUR OWN POPCORN ON THE STOVE TOP!
I did some research on movie theater popcorn and it’s quite shocking to find out that you’re paying top dollar for a bag of chemicals:
-Most movie theater popcorn is cooked in an oil product that is mostly hydrogenated coconut oil, a highly toxic trans fat.
-The corn itself is grown using insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, fumigants and other chemicals used to “treat” the corn.
-The artificial-butter-flavored topping is typically made mainly from hydrogenated soybean oil (another trans fat), artificial flavoring, beta carotene for color, and preservatives.
-One “flavoring agent” used in popcorn “butter” is called diacetyl, and it has been associated with lung disease among workers in the factories where it’s made.
I strongly recommend not eating cinema popcorn anymore, bring your own healthy snack instead! And if you crave for popcorn or have a movie night at home make it on the stove! Not in the microwave? No, a lot of microwaveable popcorn also have artificial butter flavorings, chemicals, and excessive amounts of salt in it.
It’s easy and fun to do. Make the best tasting, healthy popcorn with real ingredients! I use a whirley popcorn pan (www.whirleypopshop.com) but you can use a regular pan too; click here for video directions. My favorite is white truffle popcorn and the sweet curry is also really good!
Most importantly; use organic corn! Corn is ranked high in the top four genetically engineered crops and is very bad for you!
1/4 cup corn makes 6-8 cups
