Perfect Airy & Light Popcorn

I recently have started Trim Healthy Mama which means the above popcorn varieties are really off limits (with the exception of an occasional treat). But since I LOVE popcorn too much to only have it every so often, I knew I needed a light and airy version that would fall into the E category (learn all about THM here) but still satisfy my popcorn craving.

This light and airy version of the classic popcorn requires only a brown paper lunch sack, popcorn kernels and some extra virgin olive oil spray. It pops perfectly, makes for a perfect snack and doesn’t feel heavy or rich which is perfect for when you are trying to lose a little bit of weight but still want to satisfy your crunchy and salty craving!

Place the sack in the microwave. Sometimes I will place the sack in a bowl because occasionally I have had some of the popcorn pop through the bottom of the sack. If it’s placed in a bowl, I don’t have to clean the microwave afterwards.

Depending on the power of your microwave will determine how long you cook it. My sweet spot is right at two minutes but you will probably need to experiment. When the popcorn starts to slow down, turn the microwave off so it doesn’t burn.

Remove the sack from the microwave and begin to pour into a bowl. As you are pouring it in, give the popcorn a quick spray of the oil and a pinch of salt. Shake the bowl and pour the remaining of the popcorn in with another small spray and sprinkle of salt.

Enjoy!
