It’s no secret that popcorn, in it’s healthiest form, is a low calorie snack. But if you squirt on a bunch of salt and fake butter you can pretty much kiss low calorie goodbye.
I love stay in movie and popcorn nights. I don’t like the nasty smell that lingers from the microwave for hours after you’ve popped a hot steaming bag of store bought “theatre style” kernels.
Solution! This idea is all over Pinterest but I first heard about it from my Mom.
1. Take a brown paper bag (those lunch ones you can get for pennies)
2. Put ⅓ cup of organic popcorn kernels kernels in the bag
3. Add a little olive oil, just a dash of salt (you could also do cinnamon or any other spice you’d like for flavoring)
4. Fold the top of the bag over and put it in the microwave for a couple minutes (listen for it to stop popping like normal pop corn)
That’s it! Way healthier than store bought bags and yummier too!
Have a movie night with friends! Each person can have their own bag with their own spices or flavorings. It’s a cheap, yummy snack that won’t leave that nasty fake butter smell lingering in your microwave!
Cheap, easy, yummy, and healthy. Doesn’t get much better than that! Snack on.
