Luckie’s Food of the Week: Popcorn
• Taste great
• High in fiber, which assists with satiety
• Great snack between meals
• Light bedtime snack
How to Prepare: Pour canola oil in 3-qtr. pot/sauce pan. Allow oil to heat at low/medium flame. Put a few whole grain kernels in pot. Once kernels pop, add more to pot and cover. Move pot back/forth across burner. Add sea salt. I’d recommend iodized sea salt, which promotes thyroid health.
