Okay, Here It Goes
It’s air-popped popcorn.
And it’s super easy to make. And will only cost you about a dime, 10 cents for a 2 cup serving.
How To Cook It
You can put it in a plastic microwavable container or just put it in a paper lunch bag, fold the top, and put it in the microwave.
I use Orville Redenbaher, Non-GMO version. I put some sea salt and pepper on top. And maybe a quick spray of Olive Oil as well.
Then put it on the “popcorn” setting in the microwave and that’s it.
Remember a few things:
NO butter or oil, it’s air-popped popcorn. This is what makes it a great, weight-loss snack.
This is NOT movie popcorn or other popcorn that’s pre-packaged and has a ton of calories from sugar and fat.
