Popcorn is a great snack when you are on a diet. With the Chef’n ‘PopTop’ Microwave Popcorn maker, you can prepare fresh snacks in a healthy and low fat way.
One cup of “naked” air-popped popcorn (without any added butter or oil) has only 30 calories! If you don’t own an air popper, you can make plain popcorn right in your microwave. Add 4 tablespoons popcorn kernels to the Popcorn maker, close it, and microwave on high for 1.5 to 2 minutes. (Microwave times will vary; it will take a few trial runs to figure out the perfect amount of time required to pop the kernels without burning them.) To kick up the flavor, sprinkle your popcorn with Parmesan cheese, spices (chili powder and cumin, yum!), or even hot sauce.
