The Popcorn Sampler…

Ever since my mother-in-law gave us an air-popper with a 5 pound bag of organic popcorn for Christmas, we’ve been hooked!  Popcorn has become one of Noah’s favorite snacks!  Depending on what you top it with, popcorn can be a very healthy snack!

Popcorn is a whole grain and has many nutritional benefits including a healthy dose of antioxidants and fiber!   I’m not talking about movie theater popcorn, which is usually dripping in fake butter and unhealthy additives.  Also, please steer clear of the microwave varieties that have a chemical laden coating in the bag.
