Popcorn For Healthy Dieting



Popcorn is a good fiber source & about 40 calories a cup for the air popped kind. It is a protein that has iron, B vitamins & calcium. It really is a healthy treat just as long as it's not loaded with salt & butter. Try cinnamon or parm as a topper, you can even saute some garlic in olive oil and then add it to your popcorn or sprinkle with red pepper chips. Or how about soup with popcorn or mix it with nuts . 3 cups of popcorn is a 1 starch exchange for diabetics.

  • My husband makes us popcorn at least once a week. I put stevia and cinnamon on mine. He makes it on the stove top with very little oil. I eat it that evening after dinner and then at work the next 2 days for snacks. It's so good! - by LADYHAWK14624
