Snacks: Popcorn!

popcorn_origPopcorn isn’t what you immediately think of when it comes to eating healthy and weight loss but it can be a great option. It’s low in calories, and provided it’s not battered in toffee it’s not high in sugar too. An average bag (20g) comes in at 97 calories and it looks big too as it’s mostly air.

Watch out for the bigger bags stating their calories per serving and not per bag. That’s a cheeky way for manufacturers to trick you into thinking less than you are.

The Metcalfe’s brand is really easy to find. You’ll find them in all the local supermarkets; Tesco, Asda, Morrisson’s etc and also on the crisps isles in places like Boots. You can also get own brand multipacks from your own supermarket like Aldi, just check the nutrition label on the back.

Macros (per 20g bag): 

Carbs: 9.1g of which sugars 0.2g
Fats: 5.4
Protein: 1.6

Calories: 97kcal
