Loaded with fiber and heart healthy polyphenols, homemade popcorn can be one of the healthiest snacks around, says research
from the University of Scranton — provided it’s not drowned in butter.
Try popping your corn in an air popper or on the stove with a bit of canola or olive oil. Then top with one or more of these healthy seasonings: Rosemary, cinnamon, black pepper, garlic powder, thyme or smoked paprika. All add antioxidant power — and punch up the flavor — for just a trace of calories.
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1. Place kernels in popcorn air popper.
2. Cover with lid.
3. When popcorn is done popping, remove, top with seasoning, and serve.
