Turn the TV on and make some popcorn cause there will be some great performances. But before you make that popcorn, make sure you read these tips for a healthier bowl of popcorn.
Microwave popcorn can be dangerous.
Perflourooctanoic acid (PFOA) can be found in the lining of many popular microwavable popcorn bags. PFOA is believed to be a carcinogen so you want to try to avoid it.
Choose organic microwavable popcorn.
Brands like Newmans Own Organics and Orville Redenbacher have come out with ingredient-conscious microwavable popcorns that use only natural ingredients.
Use a paper bag to pop popcorn in the microwave.
Fill the paper bag with popcorn, roll the top down and seal it closed with a little tape. Pop in microwave like usual.
Use a popcorn popper.
The best part of this is that you control exactly what is added to your popcorn- if anything! Poppers can be used alone or on the stovetop, depending on the model you use. They range from $15 to $30 to much higher for larger ones.
