We have grown so accustomed to microwave popcorn that we have forgotten just how simple making popcorn truly is. As I make my journey to eating as healthy as possible, I realized that all the junk they put in microwave popcorn is more harmful than we know. In a recent online article,
(CBS News) An ingredient used in artificial butter flavouring for popcorn may worsen the effects of an abnormal brain protein that's been linked to Alzheimer's disease.
But before I turn you off popcorn altogether, the solution is to make this easy treat yourself, so you know exactly what you are putting in your mouth! You can add 2 handfuls of kernels to a brown paper bag and microwave it the same way you would a store bought package. Or you can make it on the stove top with a large pot and tight lid( this is my favourite technique).
You can also experiment with all different flavours both savoury and sweet.
