Instead of microwave popcorn which often has a lot of fat, chemicals for butter-flavor, and is quite expensive, it's easy to pop corn on the stove. You don't need a special popcorn popper. Just a covered pot, two tablespoons of canola oil, and 1/4 cup of popcorn over medium-high heat. Remove from heat as soon as the popping almost stops. Salt and Enjoy !

How many places have you read that you can take a lunch sack and popcorn kernals and make your own DIY microwave popcorn? I never believed it - but it's true! Kernals in a brown bag, fold the top a few times and pop for about 2.5 minutes - today I topped mine with feta and smoked paprika! YUM!
... no oil, no butter (but you can use spray butter)
Craving a cheesy popcorn snack like Smart Foods White Cheddar Popcorn? Here's a healthier alternative. Pop a bag of 100 calorie popcorn, pour it into a bowl, and top it with 2 tsp. of Cabot's Cheddar Shake Powdered Cheese. It only adds 25 calories and 1g of fat, 1 g of carbs, and 1 g of protein, but has that great cheddar taste and makes for a very satisfying snack.
An 8 oz container of Cabot Cheddar Powder sells for $5.39 and can be purchased online at the Cabot Cheese website or found at many grocery stores.
