Homemade Microwave Popcorn

With the cooler weather I am sure many of you have shifted from salads to soups; smoothies to oatmeal; and basically lots of warm weather dishes to comfort, warm-you-up foods.

This is the time of the year I find myself craving popcorn for a healthy snack.  But instead of relying on store-bought microwave popcorn (you can read here about the risks of store-bought microwave popcorn), I have long done my own DIY microwave popcorn, and it couldn’t be easier.

I discovered this easy trick to homemade microwave popcorn years ago, but I wanted to repost the easy peasy instructions along with some pictures to demonstrate how simple healthy microwave popcorn can be!

First, the supplies, brown paper lunch bags, unpopped popcorn kernels and a 1/4 cup measuring cup:

Next, pour ¼ cup of the popcorn kernels into the brown paper bag and fold over 3-4 times, folding about ¼-1/2 inch each time:

Place in your microwave for about 2 minutes, and just like regular popcorn, hit “stop” when the pops:

Pour in a bowl and enjoy!:

Who knew it was so easy to make healthy air-popped popcorn??

Life is sweet!

One of my friends told me to do this on time, and I have still not gotten around to doing it. This is a great idea though

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
