D.I.Y. Microwave Popcorn

There's no need to spend big bucks on bags of microwave popcorn. It's easy to make a healthy version with a simple brown bag.

Popcorn has some serious healthy-snack credentials; It's a low-calorie whole grain, a good source of fiber, and according to a study from Pennsylvania's University of Scranton, packed with antioxidants. But drowning in butter and salt, it losesits healthy halo. Instead, try this easy and inexpensive method for making more wholesome popcorn in the microwave.

Place 2 Tablespoons popcorn kernels in a paper lunch bag. fold top down twice to close, and microwave until popping slows almost to a stop, 2-3 minutes (makes 3 cups).
