Homemade Marinara Sauce

My boyfriend is the healthiest person I know, which is great because he encourages me to be healthier and I encourage him to indulge every now and then. However, when he indulges, he wants it to be on something that’s really, really worth it. Ya know?

Soy-Parm Popcorn

I know it may sound ridiculous, but I’m generally not a huge fan of popcorn (gasp).
