Popcorn Is A Healthy Snacking Food!



Surprised? Popcorn is good for you as long as you don't cover it with loads of butter. Not to mention that 3 cups of popcorn=1 serving of grain (surprised?)! Instead of butter, try adding popcorn seasoning that you can find in your local grocery store.

More Information:

You can also use BBQ seasoning (the powder in the shakers). I once found, in the store, a man sampling BBQ seasoning. He was sampling it on popcorn. I tried it, and couldn't believe how tasty it made the popcorn. I bought the seasoning simply so I could put it on popcorn!

    My kids (and me to) love popcorn with taco seasoning on it. We spray it with just a touch of cooking spray to make the flavor stick to air-pop popcorn! We love it, and it is a fine make ahead snack if stored in an airtight container. - by DITONNO5
  • Popcorn is great and I have found that putting a tablespoon or two of popcorn in a brown paper lunch sack, (fold over the top a couple of times) and microwaving is a great way to fix it. No oil, but if you have the calories, you can add 1/2 T butter and it is fantastic! - by BLACK741
