Get Popping! National Popcorn Day is January 19

Happy National Popcorn Day!

 

 

Today is all about popping, and what better way to celebrate than by snacking on some delicious, healthy popcorn?

The history of popcorn dates back centuries. It's believed that the Aztecs were the first people to come up with the idea of popping corn—and they did it by accident. They were trying to make cornmeal but found that their corn had exploded into pieces when they heated it up. From there, they started eating the pieces as a snack!

Now we know that popcorn is full of fiber and antioxidants. It's also a low-calorie snack—one cup of air-popped popcorn has only 31 calories! And did you know that it can help you feel fuller for longer? That means if you're trying to lose weight, popcorn could be your new best friend.

Try making some of these delicious ideas at home:

- Want to add some flavor? Try adding nutritional yeast, parmesan garlic and onion, cinnamon and sugar, honey butter…the list goes on!

- Want something sweet? Try adding chocolate chips or drizzling on some caramel sauce!

Start working on your next batch of popcorn for a delicious treat that'll keep you feeling full for hours!
