I’m a big snack person, which doesn’t work well for my waistline at all. Sweets are not my problem, I can stay away from chocolate no problem, it’s the salty snacks like chips, I’m always reaching for. With that said I’m always searching for great healthy snacks I can munch on because I can’t afford all the calories chips have. Popcorn is one of my favourites, because it’s a healthier snack option. I could honestly eat healthy popcorn for breakfast lunch and dinner.
Crawling under my blanket to watch a movie on a chilly winter night I came across this healthy, super easy and inexpensive way to make popcorn.
You can buy a bag of kernels at your local grocery store for less than 1 bag of movie popcorn, and get about ten times as much. I’m never making popcorn any other way again.
What you will need:
- All-Natural popcorn kernels
- Unsalted butter
- Microwave-safe bowl
- Microwave safe plate
Place your plate on top of your bowl and put into microwave. Cook for about 3 minutes or so depending on the wattage. The plate on top will keep your popcorn from popping everywhere :).
When your kernels have popped remove from microwave ( bowl will be hot, I recommend using oven mitts or a towel )
Take your plate off your bowl and drizzle butter over popcorn. Add a little salt as well and BAM!
There you have it, healthy Popcorn – easy and inexpensive. Will you try this at home? Let me know below!
