For a healthy snack, munch on homemade popcorn. It has more healthful plant chemicals, known as polyphenols, than a serving of fruit.    
Daily Dose

Looking for a snack food that’s actually good for you? Look no further than popcorn. The unprocessed, whole-grain treat has more healthful plant chemicals, known as polyphenols, than a serving of fruit or vegetables. Want to know where most of those nutrients and fiber are hiding? In the husks — those little brown piece that always get stuck in your teeth. Just remember that popcorn is only as healthy as the way you prepare it. Microwave popcorn has twice as many calories as the air-popped kind and twice as much fat than if you were to pop the kernels in oil yourself. Try popping your corn in a teaspoon of olive oil and seasoning with your favorite herbs and spices.
