Once popped sprinkle with some melted coconut oil and cocoa powder. Or make it simple and add a touch pinch of sea salt. It’s delicious and so much cleaner than the store bought bags. As with all foods, the nutritional value of a microwave popcorn store bought bag depends on how it’s made. Regular butter-flavor popcorn made with partially hydrogenated oil provides about 132 calories, 1.8 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat — including 2.3 grams of trans fat — and 13 grams of carbohydrates per 3-cup serving. It’s also about 30 percent lower in fiber and has 90 times the sodium of the air-popped variety. 90 TIMES the sodium. Eeek!
*Warning! Make sure your brown bag is not made from recycled paper. Some recycled paper contains metal fragments which may cause harm to your microwave!
