Green Tip of The Day
Make your own microwavable popcorn. Making your own microwaveable popcorn at home is an incredibly easy way to avoid chemicals (used to create “flavor” and coat the microwave bags) and save money. Simply buy a bag of kernels (less than $3 at the grocery store) and a stack of brown paper lunch bags (I bought 50 bags for a dollar). Place a handful of kernels in the bag, fold over the opening of the bag a few times, and pop in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes until the popping slows down. Pour on some REAL butter or olive oil and your favorite topping – salt, Parmesan cheese, cinnamon and sugar, chilli powder, etc. Give the bag a hardy shake to distribute the flavor and enjoy. It's that easy. Plus, it works out to about 8 cents a bag. Why overpay for fake butter popcorn when you can have the real deal at home at a fraction of the cost?
