Probably popcorn. Most people associate it with going to the cinema and being unhealthy but actually if you don't cover it in tons of sugar or butter it's a really good snack. Stick to plain popcorn and you have a winner. You can do a slight sprinkling of sugar if you find it more appealing but not too much.
It's got fibre, it's 100% whole grain and it's really low in fat. Lots of antioxidants too.
Infinitely better for you than potato chips, cake or cookies!
Yeah the microwave stuff isn't great. Not sure if they sell it in the USA but there is a brand called Metcalfe's Skinny Popcorn here in the UK which is a solid choice for healthy popcorn. They have some flavourings to make them appealing too.
You can buy popcorn kernels at the store and put 1/4 cup in a brown paper bag, and microwave on popcorn setting (I have to stop mine about 30 seconds early to avoid burning). To add flavor spray lightly w Pam and sprinkle some garlic salt. Yummy!
@souther29 - Guess we must eat a lot of popcorn to make it standard to have popcorn settings. It's interesting, I assumed all microwaves had that setting @Lady Guinevere- I've been popping it that way for years without issue. It's delicious-no issue.
I didn't say that you could not pop it in the microwave. I said that on the popcorn bag it says not to use the popcorn button on your microwave but to self time it at about 1 minute 45 seconds. Sorry it that was not clear.
