Everyone loves the sweet and salty combination of flavours.  Popcorn is fun to eat and can be a healthy snack when you prepare yourself.  If you are eating an anti-inflammatory, gluten-free diet and avoiding processed foods, than homemade organic popcorn could be just the snack you were craving.  Using turmeric in this popcorn recipe is an easy way to add in some anti-inflammatory benefits and using cinnamon helps with balancing blood sugar as you eat the carbohydrates in popcorn and maple syrup.
