Healthy, Energizing Popcorn!

  June 23, 2012  |    Blog

Are you looking for a light snack that will both fill you up and boost your energy? How about a long time favorite – popcorn! Popcorn is light and airy and full of whole grains, meaning it’s got fiber that will keep you full, your blood sugar levels regular, and your energy high! It’s also full of B vitamins, which help convert food into energy you can use. And with only about 31 calories per cup, it’s the perfect energizing snack! We love to make our own air popped popcorn so we can avoid unnecessary calories and chemicals and decide what flavoring we want. When we’re in the mood for a savory snack, we’ll season it with an olive oil cooking spray and a dash of pepper. Sometimes we even add a pinch of chili powder. If we’re in the mood for something sweet, we sprinkle it with a little bit of sugar and extra cinnamon. If we’re unsure, we add a little olive oil spray, pepper, and a dash of sugar for our own spiced up version of kettle corn! And whether we’re in a sweet or savory mood, the crunch is always satisfying!

Do you make your own popcorn? What do you like to flavor it with?
