salmon

Potato Latke Sandwiches with Smoked Salmon

Latkes are a treat and while they’re not particularly low in fat, the potatoes are a great source of vitamin C. Smoked salmon has slightly lower amounts of omega-3 fatty acids than fresh salmon but, like other oily fish, it provides a rich source of these essential nutrients. No wonder actresses love it.

popcorn

Popcorn

Celebrating a movie night wouldn’t be the same without popcorn. Popcorn counts as being a whole grain, so it’s actually pretty healthy for you. Keep it plain or add healthier toppings such as Parmesan cheese or a pinch of brown sugar and cinnamon.

Choose the natural butter 50 percent less fat popcorn from Orville Redenbacher’s or use your favourite brand of plain popcorn and season it yourself.
