I am definitely a popcorn lover. I can eat an entire bag by myself with no problem. Microwave popcorn is so bad for you though.
“A report from the FDA indicates that a chemical coating used in microwave popcorn bags breaks down when heated into a substance called perfluorooctanoic (PFOA). The Environmental Protection Agency has identified PFOA as a “likely carcinogen.” Another study has found an acid that can be extracted from the chemical causes cancer in animals and is “likely to cause cancer in humans.” – Care 2 Make a Difference
1. Add a 1/2 cup scoop of popcorn kernels to your brown paper bag.
2. Fold the bag over twice. Don’t use staples to secure the bag — this might spark in your microwave.
3. Put the popcorn bag into your microwave. I set mine for 3 minutes on high. Stop the microwave when the popping slows to one to two pops per second.
Be careful! Mine tipped over towards the end and a kernel popped through the bottom of the bag. At least it popped into the microwave and not at my face.
Adding butter and salt was the way to go for me, but there are lots of different options out there. Check out the original pin below for some great seasoning ideas!
