Move over, movie theater popcorn!

The recipe includes 195 calories; 3.91 grams protein; 11.66 grams total fat; and 26.1 grams total carbohydrates per serving.

Gather fresh bunches of chives, rosemary and parsley, which brim with powerful, antioxidant properties.

You’ll want to finely mince each herb, and then air pop some popcorn. Air-popped popcorn is lower in calories and makes for a quick, whole-grain snack.

Next, spray on cooking spray and then sprinkle on the herbs. Add grated lemon peel, season with salt and toss everything together.
