We normally think of popcorn on movie nights, right? The smell of sweet buttery popcorn and the thrill of a good movie go together like peanut butter and jelly. And at my house, we LOVE popcorn. We love it so much, we have a variety of mouth-watering popcorn recipes you have to try, for every occasion.
Popcorn can be a healthy snack, especially if you make it at home, where you can control the type of oil, kernels and flavoring you put on your popcorn. For a snack food, popcorn is remarkably low in calories, and it’s big on fiber, meaning that you have to work to get those few carbs. That can make popcorn a guilt-free snack — perfect for family movie nights and board game afternoons.
