Popcorn is one of the best healthiest snacks you can eat. In fact, popcorn even has some added nutritional benefits and antioxidants. The Healthy Home Economist website tells us it is due to the polyphenols that are present in popcorn.  Professor Vinson says that “Popcorn has more antioxidants in total than other snack foods that you can consume and it also has quite a bit of fiber.”  Wow!  Isn’t that great?

 

I love popcorn.  In fact it is my “go to” meal when my husband is not going to be home for dinner. It is just me and a big over stuffed bowl of popcorn covered with butter and salt. Yum! Unfortunately some of that healthiness disappears when I add the butter and salt.  In fact, the people at fitday.com say that popcorn is the number 1 healthiest snack as long as it is not drenched in butter.  Darn!  I wonder what they would have to say about caramel corn?  Probably not so healthy either but it sure is tasty.
