Easy Meal - homemade popcorn

Well I guess this is more of a snack than a meal. Whatever it is, the words quick and delicious come to mind.
I've always been a fan of popcorn and got rather addicted to the sweet and salty variety. Since I've started to try and eat clean and lean to get my weight back under control I realised that I'd have to find other ways of indulging my passion. Lean and clean is mostly about eating foods in their natural states without all the additives and empty calories added by manufacturers.

I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I've never made my own popcorn. I'm talking in a pan with popping corn (rather than microwave). Seriously it couldn't be easier, add your popping corn (got mine from the supermarket for 58p) to a pan with a little bit of oil, put a (preferably clear) lid so you can watch it and then wait for the popping to begin. 

We've tried a few varieties and we like this spicy version below but you can add any spices or weird combinations you like or just leave it plain or drizzled with melted butter (the non diet way).

Spicy popcorn
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
1.5 teaspoons chilli powder
1 tablespoon salt (but I often use a lot less)
 Mix well together and then sprinkle over popcorn once it's popped.
