It is very hard at this time of year, for me to totally forgo fruit. I just make sure it is seasonal and local, and just enjoy it, let go of the guilt and move on. If you have to do popcorn, do you pop it in oil (the old fashioned way), and maybe you can sprinkle it with grated cheese (can't remember if you do cheese or not), or mix it with crisp bacon bits, sprinkle the whole thing with a bit of ghee, work for balance maybe?
