Nutritional Yeast Popcorn

Every time I eat this favorite snack, I immediately am drawn into the nostalgic memories of my favorite movie theater. An old hole in the wall movie theater that sadly no longer exist, once called the Vic. I visited there frequently on Haight Street while living in San Francisco. It was such a gem. Old seats, the same speaker system from the 50's, movies that few had ever heard of ranging from horror, sci-fi, documentary, and indie. The best part was they served nutritional yeast popcorn served in a reusable plastic bowl, locally made soda served in a reusable plastic cup, as well as candies and chocolate that were all mom and pop locally made. 

Nutritional yeast popcorn is also a Waldorf school special. Everyone including the teachers make this at home and also for school. So you know its healthy. 

Such a yummy snack and super easy because that's how we role. Take it on school trips and feed all the kids. Make a big bowl for a party and everyone will be happy. Sneak it in to the movie theater because it never gets as healthy or delicious as this! But remember to put in a non-crinkle bag to not annoy everyone around you! Oh and be sure and bring some kefir water to enjoy with your popcorn. Yum Yum!
