  • Easier and Healthier Microwave Popcorn

    Popcorn is a great snack – it’s tasty, counts as a whole grain, and has 7 grams of fiber per 3 tablespoons (unpopped). Did you know that you can make your own “microwave” popcorn? For some reason, I always thought they did something special to the popcorn in those ready-to-pop packages, but it turns out all you have to do is put 3 tablespoons of popcorn into a lunch-size brown paper bag, fold down the top a couple of times, and microwave it on high for 2 minutes (I’m sure cooking times will vary depending on the power of your microwave oven).

    I like it plain or with some grated Parmesan cheese, but you could add anything you want to season it the way you like it.

      Hi Cathy! I like your blog a lot. What drew me to it in the first place is the title Chief family officer. I often call myself the CTO of the house, because be it setting up wireless network in the house or tinkering with any of the electronic stuff-it’s always my initiative and hence the name chief technology officer, though I also double up as CFO. Am planning to start a family soon and the tips on your blog seem extremely helpful. Read some of the stuff on lactation. We don’t have people like LCs in India, all the more reason why one has to actively get informed about all issues before hand.
      Warm regards
