Winter’s Healthiest Snack
If the colder weather and shorter days are giving you cabin (and snacking) fever, consider stocking up on popcorn.
A study published in Nutrition Journal found that air-popped popcorn, a 100% unprocessed whole grain, might be the best snack choice in terms of both satiety and calories when compared with potato chips. Participants who ate six cups of pop- corn (100 calories) reported less hunger and less of a desire to eat than the participants who ate one cup of potato chips (150 calories). In addition to saving calories during snacking, the popcorn-eating participants also consumed fewer calories during their next meal.
