That’s my favorite snack. And all my friends know me as a popcorn addict! :)

What’s better than eating a box of popcorn while watching a movie??

Compared to other snack food, popcorn is low in calories, healthy and nutritious.

It doesn’t contain any preservatives unlike most of the other food nowadays.

CALORIES:

Airpopped popcorn provides 30 calories per cup

Oil- popped popcorn  provides  55 calories per cup

Butter- popped popcorn provides  90 to 120 calories per cup

Popcorn is an extremely healthy snack unless you combine it with butter or caramel!

I personally get the fat-free microwavable one, it has 200 calories for the full bag.. I sometimes recommend it as a dinner, specially for people who like to munch on something at night while watching tv..

So skip chips and eat popcorn!

It can be a good option for kids who don’t like to eat fruits and vegetables, so it’s a healthy alternative due to its high fiber content..

 

But, popcorn is high in sodium (salt), which causes water retention, and because it is high in fiber, you may feel a bit bloated after eating it.

 

It’s also  an ideal snack to have between your meals 😉
