Here are some fun facts from popcorn.org:
• Air-popped popcorn has only 31 calories per cup; oil-popped popcorn has only 55 calories per cup.
• 3 cups of popcorn equal one serving from the grain group.
• Popcorn contains fiber, providing roughage the body needs in the daily diet.
• Popcorn is ideal for between meal snacking since it satisfies and doesn’t spoil an appetite.
While plain popcorn is the healthiest, dressing it can make for a tastier treat. You can pop it in a pan and drizzle a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil over it, sprinkle sea salt and sugar for kettle corn, or add spices like curry, cayenne, cinnamon and salt for a more savory treat.
