Snacks:We turn to them for a quick energy boost, a self-indulgent treat at the end of a long day, and sometimes even a mini-meal replacement.
They’re quick, they’re tasty, and we love them -- but they’re going straight into our bodies, so our snacks have also got to be smart. Have you ever slogged through the ingredient list of a “healthy” granola bar to find artificial preservatives nestled among 250 calories and 15 grams of sugar? Surprised to hear that a tiny, snack-sized bag of M&Ms has 230 cal and 31g of sugar sprinkled among a rainbow of artificial colors? And don’t even get me started on the trans-fat and partially hydrogenated oils in prepackaged popcorn and other prepackaged salty snacks!
Fortunately, Doc Popcorn has your back in the healthy treat department. Which of these is your favorite way to snack healthy?
1. Lunchtime Treat Retreat:
Tuck some Triple White Cheddar in the lunchbox or briefcase for a tasty midday munchy-boost. No GMOs in these corn kernels, just healthy popcorn from happy stalks.
2. Afterschool Snack Attack:
Set out a spread of Cheesy Cheddar popcorn paired with some juicy grapes (grape-peeling optional.) No artificial colors or preservatives here, so ditch the backpack, relax after the long school day, and let your mind unwind.
3. Picnic Paradise:
With only 45 calories per serving and 0 grams of sugar, Simple Pop makes the perfect healthy snack at your picnic. (Dare I say popnic?) Plus, it’s super fun to toss it up in the air and catch it in your mouth!
4. Movie Night Munchies:
Download your flicks and then settled in with some Klassic Kettle and apple slices. No artificial sweeteners in this popcorn means you can just kick back and enjoy the show.
5. Dessert Do-Over:
Who needs a heavy, sugar-laden dessert? For nighttime noshing, Doc Popcorn makes an awesome dessert alternative. Whether you’re in the mood for savory Better Butter, yummy Sweet Butter, or our slightly spicy Salt‘n’Pepper popcorn, a bowl of Doc Popcorn is a satisfying better-for-you option for an end-of-the-day treat.
So what’s your vote? Which snack occasion is your personal fave?
