Corn "Popcorn" - Snack on "C" Day

Well it's time for a snack and I'm using CORN

I've decided to snack on Popcorn, which is Corn Kernels, after all.  :)   When eating popcorn I do not add salt or butter, it doesn't need it. There are so many varieties to choose from, you can even find blue and red kernels, which give a slight light blue and red hue to popped corn.

Popcorn is a whole grain, making it a good-for-you food. It provides energy-producing complex carbohydrates, contains fiber and is naturally low in fat, if not using added butter or oils. Popcorn satisfies the appetite and 3 cups worth is equal to one serving from the grain group.
