All Aboout Popcorn

This Sparked Me!

Popcorn is actually good for you. A cup of plain air popped popcorn has only 30 calories. Popcorn has few health benefits but the key benefits are that it provides fiber, B complex vitamins and calcium. Popcorn is starchybut packed with fiber. Fiber helps slow digestion, making you feel full longer. A good snack for dieters and diabetics.
Three cups of popcorn is considered a 1-ounce equivalent from the grains group or 1 starch exchange

spinkle with cinnamon instead of butter

    I thought being diabetic meant I couldn't have popcorn anymore. Makes me happy to know that it's still on the menu, as long as I watch my portions!

    I love it too...drenched in oh so fattening butter! Freshly popped movie popcorn is my favorite! YUM! Lately I've been eating either air popped (no butter) or 94% fat free microwave.

    That's my weakness I love popcorn, I could eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner.
