Do you eat popcorn? If not, maybe you should think about it. According to this Health Day News article:

"Want a healthy snack? Consider passing the popcorn. A new study says the whole-grain treat contains more of the "good for you" antioxidants called polyphenols than some fruits or vegetables." READ MORE

I wonder if the extra butter and salt matters. ;-)

Awwww, I love popcorn! But it's one thing I've had to give up since being diagnosed with Colitis as it can irritate the colon. My favorite used to be popcorn with truffle oil and black pepper - delish!
