Save money on snacks and live

July 17th, 2008 at 10:12 am

A study came out a few years ago that microwavable popcorn causes lung cancer. Matter of fact, what brought the study on is that a high number of workers in the manufacturing plant were developing lung cancer and respitory problems from chemicals used in the popcorn.

I love popcorn, but I also love living.

My Dad came to visit my husband and I a few years ago, and showed us an awesome way to enjoy microwavable popcorn.

1. get a brown paper lunch bag
2. spread butter on the sides of bag, and about 1 teaspoon inside bag
3. put popcorn cornels in bag (test the amount)
4. fold down the top of bag to keep the popcorn in
4. pop in the microwave on the "popcorn" button or the same amount of minutes
5. when it is done put salt on it
6. Yummy!!!

Do you love snacking? What do you do to satisfy your craving, save money, and eat healthy?

    Wow, interesting! It's also much easier than you'd think to just do stovetop popcorn. A tiny bit more cooking time, but really easy. We've just started and I can't believe I used to buy the microwave version!

    I've been doing microwave popcorn for a while. Instead of butter, I spray the kernals with olive oil spray. Just a little bit. Its amazine how easy it is Smile
