Do you know how much carbohydrates your diet currently contains? Carbohydrates are what is known as providing fuel for the body and what keeps it going throughout the day – but carbohydrates also convert directly into sugar in the body, and when they become sugar they can have many undesirable effects on your health. Many people just can’t have as much sugar as others in their diet. There are many diets and diet plans that are advised to avoid the intake of carbohydrates as much as possible – but then what’s left to provide your body with the energy that it needs to get through the day? You don’t have to cut out snacking just because you are eliminating carbs. Here’s a list of some simply tasty low carb snack ideas that will get you started when you need it – and keep you going when you are in need of a boost.
You might not know this already, but popcorn is a snack that has a fascinating history and goes much further back than you might think. We have evidence of people in the ancient Mayan tribe enjoying popcorn as a snack – maize was one of their staple foods after all, so it’s really not that surprising to see the history of something as simple as popcorn going back so far into history.
Popcorn is thought of as unhealthy, but of itself, popcorn is just maize that has been popped – the healthy bit where you get to make the choice about your health is whether or not you choose to make your popcorn in the old fashioned unhealthy oil and then top it off with a side of butter, or whether you will opt for the more healthy option of the two and instead go for popcorn from an air fryer instead.
