While microwave popcorn is a quick option, we love an air popper like this one. It pops 30% faster than the microwave with virtually no unpopped kernels. Plus since it doesn't use any oil, you can make your toppings as healthy (or unhealthy—ha!) as you want. Here are five must-try toppings, recipes and photo sources, below:

The flakes are high in B vitamins, nucleotides (the building blocks of DNA and RNA) that promote cellular repair and regeneration, and they contain no gluten, no dairy, and no MSG.
