Superfood Tip: Popcorn

Popcorn is a convenient, healthy and filling food that you can snack on without feeling guilty. A typical serving is 3 cups, popped. This provides 5 grams fiber, 4 grams protein, ample amount of B vitamins and minerals and some iron. To top it off, this whole grain only provides about 100 calories per 3 cup serving.

The healthiest and cheapest way to enjoy popcorn is by using popcorn kernels; just heat the kernels in a pot over the stove and toss with a pinch of salt. By using kernels versus the microwave bag, you do not consume any additives and control the amount of salt and fat.
