Healthy snacking is not always at the top of my mind when I am running the kids to camp, tutoring, sports, etc. With the warm weather, we are all very tempted to hit the ice cream shop way too often! The folks at JOLLY TIME Pop Corn started the Healthy Pop Challenge to encourage folks like me to make healthier choices when they snack.
Some of the best things about JOLLY TIME Healthy Pop is that it’s fiber filled, low-calorie and tastes great! Popcorn is a natural, whole grain food that is also low in fat. It has the right amount of whole grains and fiber to aid in a healthier lifestyle.
In addition to a selection of their popcorn, the folks at JOLLY TIME Pop Corn included an resistance band to inspire me to get physical while I pop. You can get one too on the Healthy Pop Challenge web page. I love the idea of fitting in exercise even if you can’t devote a 30-60 minute block of your time all at once. I have the resistance band in my living room so I can do exercises while watching TV. Remember that all minutes of physical activity count toward your daily fitness goals, so why not make the most of the minutes you are popping a healthy snack too?
JOLLY TIME Pop Corn also has some great ideas for healthier mix-ins on their website. I was inspired to create a recipe of my own. I used the 100 calorie Health Pop Butter single serving bag. I simply mixed in some dried cranberries and sliced almonds. This easily divides into 2 healthy snack servings that are less than 200 calories each. The cranberries add a bit of sweetness and the almonds add extra protein and healthy monounsaturated fat. It’s so delicious! Next time, I’m going to make the Trail Mix Popcorn or maybe the Basil Garlic Popcorn. Yum!
My kids love making popcorn for our family movie nights. I even purchased these cute popcorn serving boxes to give our movie nights more of a theater experience. Watching movies at home definitely keeps the movie snacks healthier. We used JOLLY TIME Healthy Pop Kettle Corn and mixed in just a bit of candy covered chocolates and gummy bears. This is so much better than a full box of candy my kids will often eat at the theater.
Are you ready to embrace a healthier you by making healthier snacking choices? Take the JOLLY TIME Healthy Pop Challenge.
