If you’re counting calories, you’ll really appreciate this tip. I follow Dr. Fuhrman’s recipes a lot and I learned this tip from him. Instead of adding oil to a nonstick pan when you sauté onions peppers or garlic for a recipe, water sauté them!
Many recipes call for a tablespoon of oil which is adds around 120 calories. So if the oil isn’t necessary to the consistency of the finished product, this is a great way to go.
It took me a while to get up the nerve to try this because it sounded so blah, but it really works! So depending on how much oil you would normally use for a recipe, it can save a lot of calories and you can’t really notice the difference.
Every little bit helps!
