An Easy Way to Save Fat Calories

I bought this oil mister at Williams Sonoma for $15 and it’s a great device to have in your kitchen for saving calories.  Basically you add your favorite oil plus herbs/spices and spray away!  Last night I used the oil on roasted cauliflower and roasted sweet potatoes.  It worked perfectly.  I find it’s easy to go overboard on the amount of oil used when cooking vegetables or making salad dressing, so now you can control it easily.

This would be a great stocking stuffer or holiday grab bag gift for someone who likes to eat healthy.

Nutrition Tidbit:

  • 1 Tablespoon of oil contains 120 calories.
  • Even though vegetable oil is healthy, the calories add up very quickly!
  • Try measuring your oil the next time you cook to see exactly how much you are using.  Then try cutting back to see if you notice a difference.

  1. Wouldn’t this be the same calories/method of sprays like Pam?

    • Yes it would be the same calories – however, Pam spray has emulsifiers and I believe alcohol added to make it spray well. Also the quality of the oil in the spray is poor. With these misters, you can use high quality olive oil and nothing else, I also like the fact that you can add your own herbs to flavor it.
