1/4 cup plain popcorn kernels
Brown lunch sack
Place 1/4 cup popcorn kernels in brown lunch sack, fold over top. Place in microwave and select the “popcorn” setting.
Am I the only one who took 29 years to discover you can pop popcorn with just a brown bag??? We decided we didn’t want to take up space in our kitchen with an air popper, so I always made popcorn the old fashioned way on the stove with some oil, shaking the pan to keep any kernels from burning. But then I had to wash the large pan and lid and have my full attention at the stove while the kernels popped. My husband and daughter LOVE plain popcorn as a whole grain, high protein, high fiber snack and we quickly discovered the microwave method. Maybe everyone knows how to do this, but just in case this is a weekly snack of ours. No extra oils, no salt, no butter. Just a simple snack after a long workout or a quick treat for my daughter.
Plain popcorn is highly recommended in body building books for its 100% whole grain goodness and easy source of protein. Doctors also encourage kids to eat plain popcorn as it is a great high fiber snack along with the whole grains and protein. Enjoy!
