tl;dr: Can/How-do I cook jar popcorn in a microwave? Pic related
So I just realized my 100 calorie diet snack of popcorn turns out to be like 300 once I cook it on the range with cooking oil.
I was wondering if there was some way I could cook it in the microwave? Maybe with a bowl or something?
Not without oil.
Get an air popper, if it really concerns you. They're dirt cheap. It doesn't taste as good, and isn't actually good for you anyway, but I guess it means you can eat more of it.
Protein, nigga. Jesus Christ. Eggs are cheap, hard boil some. Buy bulk chicken breast, cook it in advance and have some cold chicken to eat like a cold cut snack. Learn how to make your own beef jerky. Eating featherweight carbs won't do shit for you.
I put about 1\4 cup kernels in a brown lunch sack, add a half capful of olive oil and shake the hell out of it and microwave while the bag is rolled closed for a couple minutes until popping has stopped. Add salt and pepper, shake in bag and pour into bowl.
i use this microwave popper. you can add butter on the top and it will melt in or you can do it completely dry with no oil or anything.
works great and you can use any jarred popcorn you like
Peanut butter + a lot of things works. Celery, rice cakes, accomplishes what you're looking for. Bulk amount of food + decent level of calories. Go easy and measure out the peanut butter if you're looking to lose weight. Beans give you gas, but they're fucking cheap and versatile.
>Vegetables get expensive when you eat them all the time.
I don't know where you live, but a pound of broccoli is no where near what a jar of popcorn would be.
its too hot to put your hand in anyways. you pour it out into a bowl.
if it is too hard for you to wash a bowl why are you even trying to make popcorn anyways, just go buy a bag of already popped.
