Easy Microwave Popcorn

Everyone loves a quick snack of microwave popcorn, especially if you are watching a movie with the family or want a quick snack in the middle of the day.  I have found what I feel is the best way to make a quick snack of popcorn. It is way cheaper than buying those individual bags and you will know exactly what you are putting in your body.  The cooking spray leaves a light dusting of oil to add flavor to the popcorn, with barely any calories or fat. Enjoy!

Easy Microwave Popcorn
(makes about 6 c. popped popcorn)

3 Tbsp organic (non-GMO) popping corn
Sea salt, to taste
Organic (non-GMO) cooking spray (coconut oil, non-gmo canola oil, or olive oil), to taste
1 Brown paper bag

1. Add 3 Tbsp of popping corn to a brown paper bag.  Fold the top of the bag down a couple of times.

2. Microwave the popcorn about 2 - 2 1/2 minutes, or until there is more than a few seconds pause between each pop.

3. Add salt and cooking spray, to taste, to your popcorn.  I recommend putting the popcorn in a bowl before adding the cooking spray, if it is available, because the brown paper bag tends to soak up a lot of the oil.  However, when I am at work I just eat it straight out of the bag and add more cooking spray if needed.
