Gals, you may have heard that popcorn is the closest thing to a supersnack that you can find (the non-movie-theater variety, that is). But, did you know that sprinkling a bit of this spice on it could up the health-factor dramatically? Next time you're making popcorn, consider sprinkling a bit of herbs and spices on top.
