Let's Talk Popcorn
I love warm popcorn right out of the popper. None of that stuff you buy in the grocery store in a bag for me, I don't do microwave popcorn either. I like the sound of it popping and I love watching it overflow into the bowl. Read on to learn how to make your popcorn better for you and why the oils used in popping your corn make a difference.
In addition to exercise and quality sleep, living a healthy lifestyle includes eating healthy foods. Part of healthy foods are whole grains, fruits and vegetables, oils, meats and dairy. Popcorn is a grain, but let's not take all the fun out of it. Diabetics, those with heart problems and those watching their cholesterol will all benefit from this fun and healthy food. The oils used in popping corn are important. Too much heat can make oils smoke and it breaks down the healthy aspects of the oils. Popcorn supplies at PopcornPopper.com uses healthy canola and green tea oils in addition to combinations of vegetable oils. It is a given that the buttery topping on popcorn is not butter because butter burns when heated. Alternative ingredients give it that movie-theater buttery taste. To get really good theater-quality popcorn, consumers must have the proper popper. Remember the small pan with tin foil over it that people made popcorn in back in the day? Popcorn lovers can have it again, from popcorn supplies at PopcornPopper.com. Also available are poppers resembling a pressure cooker in addition to microwave poppers and air poppers. When to enjoy popcorn? At the office for an afternoon snack to keep up blood sugar levels is an ideal time to enjoy popcorn. Of course, no movie would be complete without it. Popcorn can be given as gifts in baskets at any time of the year or for any occasion. Christmas trees aren't the only places for strings of popcorn anymore.
