Have you ever felt a little run down? Do you find yourself wanting an afternoon snack to boost your energy, take away that hungry feeling, or maybe you just need some comfort food? I find that popcorn usually does all of the above for me.
There are several benefits from eating popcorn. Not only is it a delicious snack but it’s a great source of fiber, and most of us do not get enough fiber in our diets. Popcorn is also good for helping to lower cholesterol levels and control blood sugar levels. It’s good for helping people lose weight because of the fiber content.
My favorite way to eat popcorn is to pop organic popcorn in my hot air popper, drizzle it with extra virgin olive oil (not too much), and sprinkle it with sea salt or pink Himalayan salt. Yum! Whenever I want a different taste then I add one or two spices to it. These herbs also boost the immune system so it’s a win/win! There are a lot of good herbs to put on popcorn. These are just some of them.
If you can’t tell, popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. I pop a small amount for a snack, probably four cups of popped popcorn (maybe five). In fact, it sounds good and I may go have some right now.
PS ~ Try to use organic popcorn but at the very least use Non-GMO.
