Movies and popcorn go hand in hand, so it’s a no-brainer to serve the crunchy snack at your Oscars viewing party this Sunday. But don’t go making a box of that artificially flavored, 99 percent fat-free, microwave popcorn! Pop it from scratch. Making your own popcorn is healthier (1 cup of air-popped corn comes in at just 31 calories) because you control what goes into the final product.
