The next time you find yourself looking for a snack, try reaching for air-popped, lightly salted popcorn, instead of potato chips! Why?
Well, there are some nutritional benefits of a serving (4 cups; 2 tbsp kernels) of popcorn, like:
- High-fiber whole grains. Popcorn packs more fiber per serving than whole wheat bread!
- Low calorie. Popcorn is a good source of polyphenols, which are antioxidants that are linked to better blood circulation and digestive health.
NOTE: Not the popcorn at the movie theater, that is high in calories, saturated fats, and sodium!
