What can I say? I love popcorn. Every time I go to a movie theatre, I have to have my bag of popcorn and water. I never add salt or butter because I’m still trying to keep my girlish figure. (Ahem…)
Did you know that popcorn’s a whole grain and a good source of fiber—a smart snacking choice. But to keep it super heart healthy, choose air-popped. It has fewer calories (31 per cup compared to 50) and a quarter of the fat of oil-popped.
Sometimes when I want more flavor, I lightly drizzle the hot popcorn with olive oil and toss a bit of grated Parmesan (1-2 Tbsp. per 3 cups).
If you are in the market for a compact popper try the West Bend Air Crazy Hot Air Popcorn Popper. For only $29.99 at westbend.com, you can make a crisp bowlful in less than 5 minutes.
