Brown Bag Your Popcorn

Does popping kernels of corn in a brown bag actually work? YOU BETCHA! I put 2.5 tbs in a brown sack, fold, fold, fold, squeeze the fold and then microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. (Listen for the pops) No oil, no butter and today I topped it with feta and smoked paprika. For this popcorn junky this trick is a winner!

Does Brown Bag Popcorn Work?

How many places have you read that you can take a lunch sack and popcorn kernals and make your own DIY microwave popcorn? I never believed it - but it's true! Kernals in a brown bag, fold the top a few times and pop for about 2.5 minutes - today I topped mine with feta and smoked paprika! YUM!

Make your own HEALTHY microwave popcorn SO EASY!

I love popcorn as a snack and would buy 94% fat free microwave 3 packs UNTIL NOW. Use a large tupperware bowl with a lid...don't seal the lid all the way around, just enough to hold it on. OR: A paper lunch sack works well. Insert 1/4 cup or less popcorn (white or yellow or whatever you like). Put into microwave for 2-3 minutes...listen for popping to slow like you normally would. (use caution if you use a glass bowl with a plate inverted for a lid as it will be hot)

Air-Popped Popcorn

If you're like me... you love snacking in front of the TV!!! But this mindless eating can be a huge problem. So, buy an Orville Redenbacker's Air-Popped Popcorn machine, some whole popcorn kernels, and then you can have a HUGE bowl of air-popped popcorn to snack on for about 150 calories! And tons better for you than bag or movie theater popcorn. Popcorn seasonings are great too, just watch the sodium content.

Salt and Vinegar Treat!

I buy the President's Choice Blue Menu 100-calorie popcorn bags and I make it into a salt and vinigar snack. Little bit of white vinegar sprinkled on and some sea salt. It's fixes my cravings for salty chips! Yum!

Great Popcorn

I use Kernal Seasons popcorn seasoning on my popcorn. I spray the popcorn with butter spray and then put the seasoning on. It comes in a variety of flavors...sweet, cheesy, and hot. We keep several on hand for a nice variety.

Maximizing your microwave popcorn yield

Fill a mug full of water and microwave it for 1 minute. Then take out the mug and put in your bag of popcorn. Set to desired time. The "pre-heated" microwave will leave fewer unpopped kernels in the bag, and more popcorn for you to enjoy!

popcorn

you can eat a ton of plain popcorn without much damage to the nutrition tracker- when I need to "chew and crunch" I pop and eat it plain.

Popcorn Tricks

For air-popped popcorn, instead of salt and tons of butter, I use Mrs. Dash Table Blend and a table spoon or so of heart healthy spread, melted. Put the popcorn in a storage bag, shake in some Mrs. Dash and the "butter" and shake it until it's all blended. Yummy and still healthy!
