Garlic Gold Popcorn: A Snacking Sensation!
It is my first weekend off from debate travel after a long month and that meant hanging out at home and watching the playoffs. One of my favorite snacks when kicking back if air-popped popcorn with a drizzle of olive oil. It is a great way to get in some healthy fats and some filling fiber in a tasty treat!
Tonight I figured I would mix it up a little and add another dimension to the popcorn bowl. I replaced my standard unfiltered olive oil on my popcorn with Garlic Gold Oil. I then opened my bottle of Garlic Gold Sea Salt Nuggets and sprinkled a healthy amount over the popcorn. As I learned last week, these pre-roasted crunchy garlic nuggets can be used in cooking, but they are also fabulously crunchy and delicious poured over your prepared dish. The seasoning added the salt I would normally sprinkle over my popcorn but also a crunchy garlic goodness that satisfied my craving for something savory but healthy.
Sunday night is the close of the Garlic Gold giveaway. I normally don't devote more than one post, especially with such a busy week I have had, on one product. However, these portable, healthful products have served me well in work and play. If you haven't had an opportunity to try out Garlic Gold for yourself, enter the contest now!
I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
