Today is National Popcorn Day.  Popcorn can be a healthy, whole-grain snack and part of your daily meal plan. Choose low-fat microwave popcorn, or better yet, buy the 100 calorie snack bags to control your portion size. If you prefer to use an air popper, you can spray the popcorn with butter flavored spray and salt lightly. Another option to flavor your popcorn is to use a seasoning blend from the spice aisle in the supermarket. If you’ve had weight loss surgery, wait 6 months before adding popcorn to your diet. Sometimes the hulls can be a problem and they are hard to digest.
