Easy Microwave Popcorn

There's a tip on the Weight Watcher's message board about popping pop corn kernels in a paper bag in the microwave. I thought I would give it a try. You know what? It's pretty good. It's definitely low in points since 3 tablespoons of unpopped pop corn kernels is 1 point. Although if you add any extras, you need to count those points. All I do is spray a little olive oil spray on the pop corn and sprinkle with salt.

What you need:
1 lunch-size paper bag
3 tablespoons pop corn kernels

Place the kernels in the paper bag. Fold over the top of the bag twice. (See the pictures below as a guide.)



Then place the bag in the microwave flat, so the kernels are sitting in the center of the bag.



Microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes. Listen to the popping. If it slows down before the 2 minutes are over, take it out of the microwave before it burns. Sprinkle with salt and serve.



(The entire bowl is 1 pt.)
