I have always loved popcorn, but it became a special kind of comfort food for me when I began my journey with Weight Watchers 10+ years ago. Why? Because popcorn was a healthier snack option, made from whole grains, low in calories and when choosing a low fat option, I didn’t have to sacrifice flavor.
In our home we choose Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! to munch on while watching TV and movies in the evening. A box of it is in our grocery cart nearly every week. A serving size is around 7.5 cups (that’s huge!) and there are two servings per 2.7 oz bag. Because of that we quickly became Orville Redenbacher junkies!
One thing we like about the Orville Redenbacher brand is their ‘newer’ pop up bowls. If you haven’t already tried these yet, I urge you too. As if making popcorn in the microwave wasn’t easy enough, they make snacking, sharing and clean up easier.
Even though I am no longer actively following the Weight Watchers program, I still try and watch my snacking habits, especially in the evenings. So with Orville Redenbacher’s Healthy Snacking Challenge, we chose to eat the SmartPop! popcorn in exchange for other snacks we might reach for. It is so yummy, it really wasn’t a chore to do.
Even though popcorn snacking was instituted in our home more for my benefit, it’s a great choice for the whole family. While my daughter tends to want different snacks all the time, popcorn is one of those tried and true snacks that she doesn’t seem to tire of eating.
