The Chip Fiasco

So my logic was this...

I often feel like a salty snack treat and have been making air popped popcorn when I do.  But that involves a fair amount of butter (it just does!) and so I thought to myself that maybe it would be somehow... healthier if I bought chips instead.

So I bought a mini bag of "healthy" chips from a local company and then a bag from a UK company and then I did it again, rinse and repeat until I started craving chips and buying big bags when I couldn't find the small bags.

And then I started going through a big bag in a day and...well... I stopped.

Told myself that Halloween was my last day of chips.

But... does anyone actually know if my buttery buttery popcorn is "better" for me or if my chippy Mc Chippersons are?

I'm sure the answer is "neither" but...

I don't know.  I'm not buying chips anyway, but I think I'm somewhat curious.

Suppose I could just google it...

Google says popcorn, but... I don't think they're talking about popcorn with delicious delicious butter.

It's the butter that's the problem, not the popcorn. Butter, delicious lovely butter - all fat and salt and yummy.

Air popped is good for you, but tastes like packing peanuts without the butter. I've been popping with oil in my big kettle pot lately, and find that if I sprinkle a bit of sea salt on it, I don't need butter to make it taste good.

Anyway, yeah. Chips bad. Butter popcorn, bad. *sigh*

Oh butter... fatty salty butter...

C-Dawg told me how to oil pop so I might try that tomorrow!

But... butter... *dreamy sigh*

As you would be told on reddit's fitness sub: if it fits your macros...

There's nothing intrinsically bad about butter (I wrote a fairly long rant about diet misconceptions the other day on my blog) - so long as you're not burning through it by the pound you shouldn't worry!

Actually, I tried popping it today in coconut oil and it wasn't awful :)
