I eat a bag of Nutrisystem’s White Cheddar Popcorn when I’m looking for a small snack to keep my hunger pangs at bay between lunch and dinner and have a craving for something cheesy and crunchy.
One of my dietary goals is to stick to eating foods which contain natural ingredients, so I love that I can understand each of the ingredients on my packet of popcorn. Examples of which include popcorn, vegetable oil, cheddar cheese powder and buttermilk powder. Better yet, this particular popcorn boasts a variety of savory flavors such as garlic and onion, so if you’re looking for a low-calorie snack which is packed full of flavor, you may have found your new favorite snack. Especially if you’re anything like me and have a weakness for calorie-laden potato chips and are looking for a healthier snack option.
Each serving of White Cheddar Popcorn only contains 150 calories and 7 grams of fat, which means I won’t ruin all my hard work in the gym, by treating myself to a mid-afternoon snack. After all, there’s no point spending thirty minutes, burning 400 calories on an elliptical machine, only to consume 400 calories by scoffing down a couple of cookies.
While I admit that I love the fact that White Cheddar Popcorn is a low-calorie product, I also appreciate the fact that it actually contains healthy nutritious components such as fiber and protein. In fact, each single-serving contains 5 grams of protein, which my body can use to repair my muscles after a grueling gym workout. Each serve also boasts 3 grams of fiber, which helps keep my digestive system running like clockwork. After all, there’s nothing worse than feeling bloated. Lastly, each portion of perfectly popped crunch popcorn also offers 2% of your daily recommended intake of iron and 4% of your daily recommended intake of potassium. Personally, I love being able to munch on a nutritionally balanced snack which doesn’t compromise on taste and offers a wide array of nutritional benefits as I love being able to enjoy a snack, without experience guilt for snacking.
I also love how White Cheddar Popcorn offers a generous portion of food as after eating a single serve I feel completely satisfied and am not tempted to purchase junk food. Before finding healthy snack options such as White Cheddar Popcorn I used to drive through fast food drive-thrus after work, in order to tide me over till dinner. Which meant that I used to consume a lot of unnecessary calories, which prevented myself from achieving my long-term weight loss goals.
As each serving of popcorn comes individually packaged, I find it a breeze to pop a pack into my car’s glove box or to keep a serving in the drawer of my office desk. That way if I have the urge to eat something, I can make a healthy, well-informed choice instead of falling back into my old habit of relying on calorie-laden junk food.
So if you’re looking for healthy snacks which you can eat and still lose weight, it’s well worth sinking your teeth into a handful of White Cheddar Popcorn!
