Homemade Microwave Popcorn

I was chatting with a friend the other day and she mentioned that she needed brown lunch sacks for homemade microwave popcorn. My ears perked up instantly because I'm all about anything homemade. Turns out you can make your own microwave popcorn with a paper lunch sack and popcorn kernels. Awesome right?!

What you need:
  • 1/3 cup pop corn kernels
  • paper lunch sack
 What you do:
Toss the kernels in the sack.

Fold the top of the bag down like so. Place the bag in your microwave and hit the popcorn setting. If you don't have a popcorn setting on your microwave then 2 1/2 to 3 minutes should work. (or until you hear pauses of about 2 seconds between pops)
un-popped

Top with your favorite popcorn toppings or just eat it plain. There's only 20 calories in a cup of plain popcorn.

The perfect guilt free easy organic snack.

Here's a little tip: Un-popped kernels can go back in the bag and popped in the microwave next time.
