Most people have probably heard that bags of microwave popcorn are not good for you due to chemicals used in the lining of the bag, including perfluorooctanoic acid. There’s an easy and inexpensive solution for those who love this otherwise good for you snack. Make your own!

(Makes 2 to 4 servings). In a small glass container, or a brown paper lunch bag, combine 1⁄4 cup popping corn with 1⁄4 teaspoon salt and fold the top of the bag over a couple of times (some people tape it shut). Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes, until there are 4 or 5 seconds between pops. Open the bag or container carefully, because steam will have built up. Toss with your seasonings and a drizzle of butter or olive oil or serve as is.
