The Benefits of Popcorn
Popcorn is one of the healthiest snack foods in the world (once it’s not mixed with any high-fat, high-salt, or high-sugar additives).
Popcorn is undoubtedly an option to explore if you’re looking for a great, tasty snack alternative for the year ahead. January 19th is popcorn day, so let’s learn more about this magic snack.
What are its benefits?
One of the most unknown things about popcorn is that it’s a whole-grain food, which means it’s rich in many essential nutrients for our bodies.
- Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)
- Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
- Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
Furthermore, it is an excellent source of fiber, high in antioxidants, and has been linked to weight loss due to its high fiber and low calorie qualities.
However, how you prepare it will determine how healthy it actually is.
Microwave-prepared or pre-packaged popcorn will likely have a lot of additives. So, the best method is to buy a bag of popcorn kernels (organic, if you can), cook them in a pan with coconut or olive oil, and season lightly with high-quality salt or other spices. When you do that, you have got a nutritious yet delicious snack to get you through 2023
