This “secret” to healthy microwave popcorn is so easy and obvious you have to wonder if the food industry hasn’t conspired to keep the public ignorant all these years. Once you try it, you’ll never buy popcorn in those little folded bags again. It’s this easy: Take a plain, brown paper lunch bag, put a modest handful of un-popped kernels inside, roll down the top a couple of turns, put it in the microwave and nuke about three minutes on high. Voila! Beautiful, fluffy, air-popped corn with no additives or chemicals! Since you used no oil, you can add 100 calories of melted butter (about a tablespoon) as a treat. Salt to taste.
