Last year we wrote about our Christmas in July tradition. By simply thinking ahead in July we are much more relaxed and able to enjoy the holidays in December. You can start making some Holiday Pillowcases, freeze some divinely delicious Buttermilk Syrup, construct a few Utensil Box’s and start saving jars for some Clean Eating Christmas Popcorn!
When you are trying to stay healthy popcorn can be the perfect treat. During the holidays, when everyone tends to binge on lots of treats, it can be very refreshing to receive something on the healthy side. This Christmas Popcorn is super easy to put together, tastes amazing and is just right for neighbor gifts. By thinking ahead in July you can start purchasing cute jars and popcorn when it’s on sale. To save some money you can even start saving peanut butter jars. Wash them and out and spray paint the lid and no one will ever know. 😉 But don’t forget to make yourself a batch too! This popcorn is pretty amazing! CLICK HERE for your free printable to go with it.
