Is popcorn a healthy snack?

Generally speaking, yes it is. If the popcorn is air popped and only lightly seasoned with salt. Now, if you cover it in butter and salt, that is another story.

It definitely won’t be healthy if you melt butter and pour a ton on the popcorn.

Microwave popcorn is healthier than movie theater popcorn. Stove top popcorn can be healthy depending on how much oil you use.

For the perfect popcorn cooked on the stove, shake the pan so the popcorn kernels do not burn. You can use coconut oil or olive oil to make stovetop popcorn.

As the kernels pop, the delicious smell of popcorn will fill the house.
