Popcorn: For Your Health
These days, Americans are snacking more than ever. In fact, roughly 25% of the total calories we eat every day come from snacks, which is why it's important to choose foods that fit into our healthy lifestyles.
One way we can snack smarter is by adding more whole grains and fiber to our diets. Only 20% of Americans reach the recommended whole-grain intake, and only 5% reach the recommended fiber amount.
Luckily for us, popcorn provides both of these nutrients, especially compared to other common snacks like chips and candy. Studies have even shown that popcorn eaters have twice the amount of whole grains in their diet and about 20% more fiber.
Another reason popcorn should be your snack of choice is because you can eat more for fewer calories. Other snacks can have triple the amount of calories in a 1-cup serving. So next time you're craving a snack, choose the one that allows you to have all of the flavor, with none of the guilt.
