Did you know that March is National Nutrition Month, it is so important to eat well during meals and to make sure that we are showing our kids how to eat healthy. Nutrition is not just about avoiding fats, and not eating junk food, its about making choices that bring you vitamins, minerals, trace nutrients,fiber, and whole grains to our diets. We need to make sure that if we are eating 3 meals a day that are nutritious, we are also eating snacks that are healthy and good tasting. With Gaslamp Popcorn they have the snack part covered. Its good for you and tastes fantastic!
Did you know that popcorn is a wonderfully nutritious snack? I knew that as a diabetic eating popcorn helped with the control of my blood sugar and the days that I ate it I had better control than on the days that I did not, but I had no idea that it was such a healthy snack overall.
It has been found that there is a very high level of polyphenols in popcorn, these are the antioxidants that have been found to help with the prevention of degenaritive diseases such as osteoperosis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and diabetes. Wow! Who knew. I know that it makes me happy because I love popcorn. Plain popcorn, flavored popcorn, just salted popcorn, any of it is good with me. I am glad to know that it now also is good for me.
Popcorn is relativealy high in fiber and is 100 percent an unprocessed whole grain, most people need more fiber,and whole grains in their diets and popcorn is a great way to keep that whole grain and fiber number high. It is also considered a low GI food, which means it does not send your blood sugar soaring and then crashing.
Gaslamp popcorn has some of the best popcorn I have eaten, they have numerous flavors and always are coming up with more. Kettle Corn, Caramel Cinnamon, White Cheddar, and new Olive Oil and Sea Salt, are just some of your choices. The Olive Oil and sea salt is non-GMO Project verified, and has only 37 calories per cup. Wow! A flavored popcorn never gave you so much taste for so little!
The best part is you can find the Gaslamp Popcorn at your local grocer or you can buy them online. I have it delievered and its fast and always comes in perfect condition.
There really is not a good reason not to eat popcorn. As long as it is good quality and tastes fantastic why would not want to eat it. Not only in March, but every other month too! I always have popcorn around the house, it keeps me out of snacks that are not so good for me and it is an easy food to travel with too! Pick some up at your local store or order some online to keep your supply up! Gaslamp Popcorn is sponsoring a giveaway for 2 large bags of their new Olive Oil and Sea Salt to celebrate! Enter today and Good Luck!
