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!
You can always use spray butter if you like. As a recovering butter-holic, spray butter seems to do the trick.

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!
... no oil, no butter (but you can use spray butter)
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.
