Popcorns to the rescue

Popcorn is a great choice for a substantial snack with a low-calorie count. Air-popped popcorn is extremely minimal in fat, calories, and sugar. It’s also high in fiber and whole grains, which can help you feel fuller for longer, as well as magnesium for bone and muscle health, potassium, and antioxidants. 
To prepare air-popped popcorn, begin by gathering some fresh popcorn kernels. The freshness of these kernels is critical. But there’s a snag! Popcorn kernels do not require butter or oil to pop. Instead, all you need is a nonstick pot with a tight-fitting lid to make your fresh kernels pop. Preheat the non-stick pot for 2 minutes over medium heat. After that, swiftly add the kernels to the saucepan and cover it with a tight-fitting lid. Remember to shake your pot every second or two after you’ve inserted the kernels. Remove the pot right away, and voilà! You’ll have the greatest healthy air-popped popcorn ever.
