Sneak into the movie with your OWN Popcorn

It's a time honored ritual, you buy your movie ticket, get some pocorn, grab your seat, and escape from reality for the next couple hours while watching a good movie.

Popcorn made at home is considered a fairly decent snack (without butter), but movie popcorn can really pack on the calories (even the no butter version) as several chains use coconut oil (90% saturated fat) to pop it in. The reality is a medium movie popcorn has about 600 calories (about 40 grams of saturated fat), and that's without adding the buttery topping!

You can still enjoy your movies while snacking, but you are going to have to play the role now of a secret movie smuggler. That's right, operating under the radar, penetrating enemy lines, to save you and the world from bad health. Ok, that's a little dramatic, but you get the idea, you are going to have to sneak in some healthy snacks. You can pop your own pocorn at home naturally, put it in a brown bag and smuggle in a large coat pocket or your purse. Plain almonds are also a great snack, as well as seedless grapes, and they can be snuck in easily.

Now keep in mind, Sodas are the worst refreshment for you to drink with your snack because of the high fructose corn syrup, so don't be afraid to ask for a courtesy water cup. Fill it up at the water fountain, and you've just saved lots of money and lots of calories!

Cheers,
