Need a healthy snack? It’s National Popcorn Popping Month!

Is popcorn a wonder food?  I think we’ve all had some at some point in our lives.  I bet you can’t think of anyone who hates it because it is very versatile.  Popcorn has long been used in the movie theaters, but it isn’t the healthiest way to enjoy it, coated in fats and salt.  Air-popped popcorn is a low-fat, high-fiber food which will help your body feel full; a good thing when you want a snack between meals.  Want to know more, like different toppings that if used in moderation, can keep it low-fat?  Or maybe you’d like to know popcorn nutrition information.  Do you know what nutrients can be found in this wonder food?  You might be surprised how many there are.  Here is a link to give you that and more:
