<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"> plain air popped popcorn is definitely healthy--good fiber and low calorie. however, for a great snack mist with either oil or a good cooking spray and sprinkle with a little salt, nutritional yeast and garlic powder.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

I second the air popped popcorn!! It is healthy if prepared the right way.<br><br><br><br>
I take a braggs spray bottle and fill it with half water and half organic olive oil. I spray the air popped pocorn then shake and repeat a few more times. Then I sprinkle with nutritional yeast and Vegizest. It is healthy and amazingly delicious and it is salt free!!

When I make popcorn, I melt some Earth Balance (that's a vegan margarine) and put that on the popcorn, toss it around to coat, and then sprinkle on a spoonful or two of nutritional yeast with a little salt. Mix a little, and eat.

mmm popcorn!!<br><br>
on a similar note though..<br><br>
somebody told me a while back never to eat those puffed brown rice cake things because the way they're processed means your body tries to fight them..or something. i forget. i counted it as nonsense (or potential fact that ill choose to ignore, coz i love the plain ones with tomato sauce..or tahini..or avocado..mmm ricey heaven!) but this thread reminded me of it, how can that be true? its just heat treated? sure it loses all the nutrients of ACTUAL brown rice, but i don't think its something your body fights against..is it? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br>
n.b. will make no difference to my consumption of them but still.

Many people aren't aware that popcorn is a whole grain food. Three cups of popcorn is equivalent to 2 servings of whole grain. It's low in calories and fat. Plus, it tastes good!<br><br><br><br>
