When pregnant, I try my hardest to eat healthy snacks, and believe me it's hard because I'm a salty snacker. Thankfully I don't buy junk food at the store, but lord help me when I visit my parents' house, since my mom continues to stock the pantry with chips and crackers, my weaknesses. Sigh.
Scrounging around in my own pantry, I remembered how much I love popcorn, and what a pretty healthy treat it is (minus melted butter and such). Did you know you can make it in your microwave, without having to buy microwave popcorn?
Misto is the best invention ever. It holds just pure oil, no preservatives or other stuff like in commercially-sold kitchen sprays. Really, whatever you put inside it is what comes out.
Then fold your bag closed a few times. I then tear a little notch in the top, just so it doesn't come unrolled in the microwave.
Cook the popcorn on high in your microwave for 2 minutes. I always stand nearby and take the popcorn out immediately when there is more than 2 seconds in between pops. Perfect popcorn every time.
Sprinkle the hot popcorn with salt and pepper, and a little Parmesan. There are tons of other great recipes online, and this one for Kettle Corn sounds especially tasty.
