Some Dr.'s are anti popcorn but it's OK on my plan. I have it a couple of times a month and definitely at the movies ;) I was cleared for all foods as tolerated at 8 weeks but I did hold out till about 4 months for popcorn. As always heed the advice of your medical posse.
Popcorn is a whole grain.
Popcorn is a good source of fiber.
Air-popped popcorn has only 31 calories per cup. Oil-popped is only 55 per cup.
Corn is one of the world's healthiest foods
Looking to spice up your popcorn?
Dry taco seasoning mix
Dry ranch-style seasoning mix
My favorite is Parmesan cheese, Garlic powder, and Oregano.
I buy the Orville Redenbacher Smart Pop 100 calorie mini bags. One bag has 100 calories, 2 grams of fat, 4 grams of dietary fiber, and 3 grams of protein.
