It is safe to say that I have a
When I was a young, single mom, I was pretty poor! My daughter and I sometimes had peanut butter drizzled on popcorn for dinner!
The flavored popcorn is deadly to diets, though! I (usually) stay away from caramel corn, cheese and other popcorns. And bagged microwave popcorn? That is scary stuff! I won't touch it!
I will tell you how I make the perfect batch of popcorn. I eat the whole batch, too, for only 130-150 calories!
First, we start out with this great little gadget. It allows me to pop my corn in the microwave without any added fat.
Buy some good quality popcorn
It doesn't have to be Orville's. And ALWAYS store your popcorn in a jar, ziploc or otherwise airtight container in the fridge or freezer to keep it fresh! If it is not popping well, add a few drops of water and shake it. Allow it to sit overnight.
I digress..... measure 1/4c popcorn into the popper.
Pop on high in your microwave until popping slows down to about 1 per second. Remove from oven and carefully remove lid to prevent steam burn!
Pour into a large bowl (there will be more than you think!).
Spray with your buttery spray...
... and sprinkle with sea salt
(I usually spray, salt, stir and repeat).
Sit down and enjoy your 150 calorie HUGE snack!
So what is your go-to snack? When you are short on calories and long on munchies, how do you handle it?
