Simple but Genius

Let's start with sometimes my husband is a genius.

You see our family enjoys popcorn, nothing fancy just popped corn (and maybe a little seasoning salt).

Well after reading articles such as this we began rethinking microwave popcorn.

So not one to be defeated my husband decided to take an ordinary brown paper bag with a 1/4 cup of organic popcorn and viola:

He popped it for about 2 minutes and we had a healthy bag o' snack.

Topped simply with a little pink himalayan salt and we were good to.

This is a good example of how dad's "fix" things.

Looking forward to presenting him with another challenge to see how he does (I am quite sure he will come out a winner).


  1. So the paper bag worked just fine? COOL! We love popcorn- and just grabbed some pink Himalayan sea salt from Trader Joes- Perfection!

  2. What?? You just popped the corn in a regular paper bag??? That's awesome :)

  3. He paid you to call him a genius on your blog, didn't he? :o)

    I had no idea you could pop popcorn in a brown lunch bag! Pretty cool! We eat a ridiculous amount of popcorn at home, too. Probably because we are also big movie watchers. :O) I'll have to try it your way!

  4. Wow so simple! Can't wait to try it.

  5. Wonderful alternative. I always air pop mine but this is great too. We love popcorn around here, such a great healthy snack.

  6. I love popping corn like that - and it's easy to toss with flavorings right in the bag.

  7. That is ingenius! Why hadn't we thought of that before? I can't wait to give it a try on our next home movie night :)
