Mar 26, 2012

If you like snacking but can only eat healthy foods, popcorn can be your solution. Popcorn contains more of an antioxidant substance called polyphenols than fruits and vegetables and the popcorn hulls have a high concentration of polyphenols and fiber. It's the only snack that is 100% unprocessed whole grain. Even whole grain cereals are processed. Now don't get too excited yet, adding butter and salt to popcorn loads it up with calories and cholesterol. Also air popped popcorn is the healthiest option, microwave and oil popped are prepared with preservatives and what not so be sure to check what popcorn your getting.
