It’s always great when you find validation in print of what you know in your heart is healthy, clean eating.  In the April issue of Fitness Magazine, 2011, there was an article about popcorn as a healthy snack.  They reference a study from the University of Toronto that found that the chemicals used to coat the insides of processed microwave popcorn can contaminate the popcorn and enter into your bloodstream.  “These substances were shown to break down into perfluorinated carboxylic acids” says Jessica D’eon.  It’s hard to distinquish which brands do or do not have these chemicals because manufacturers don’t put that info on their packaging.  But…there is a better way!  Mine!

Put a couple of handfuls into a clean brown paper bag (they say to add a teaspoon of olive oil, but I don’t use it and I love the way mine tastes).  Fold the top over tightly, and microwave on high for 2 minutes or so.  Stay close because there is nothing grosser than the smell of burnt popcorn which can ruin a microwave.  Then I add butter flavored spray.  I know it’s manufactured and not clean eating but I love the richness of the flavor.  Add a pinch of salt if you need the taste.  If you pull back on the salt, eventually, you won’t even like all the saltiness of most popcorn brands anymore.

Enjoy.  It’s a great source of fiber, and it to me is comfort food!
