Microwave Popcorn...the Healthy Way!!

Sometimes nothing beats a bag of microwave popcorn!  It's warm, salty, buttery, soft but still crunchy, and it makes your house smell so yummy!  But have you ever stopped to look at the ingredients list and nutrition facts?  Chances are you probably won't be able to pronounce a few of the ingredients, and even the light popcorn has trans fat!  I have a simple and equally delicious (if not more so) recipe for your own all-natural microwave popcorn!

You will need:
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 paper lunch bag
salt to taste

Simply mix your oil and kernels in a small bowl and pour into your paper lunch bag.  Fold the bag down a couple times and microwave until your popping starts to slow down, my microwave gets it done in 2 minutes.  Carefully open your bag and sprinkle salt (or get creative and add your own flavors), shake, and enjoy :).
