Dine-In: Movie Night-In


Going to the movies with friends can be so much fun, but the expenses can add up. Not only does it hit you in the pocketbook but also in the waist with the high calorie snacks at the snack bar.

Popcorn at the movie theater can have up to 1,000 calories! Chances are you are splitting that popcorn with a group of people but it is still unwanted calories. Next time you and your friends want to have a movie night, try staying in. Pick up a movie at the blue box and make your own low calorie snacks. Here are some popcorn recipes with a little spice.
