Caramel Popcorn Recipe

Tahini is a fantastic source of protein and is rich in the essential amino acid methionine, which helps aid liver function by reducing fat deposits in the liver. This popular sesame paste also provides plenty of healthy unsaturated fats and vitamin E, which help promote heart health. Pumpkin and sunflower seeds are a wonderful source of zinc, which is vital for supporting male and female fertility, needed for a strong immune system and required for healthy skin and wound healing. Coconut oil is one of the safest cooking oils to use at higher temperatures as it won’t turn into a harmful trans fat.
