Dr Oz: Cooking Spray Reviews
Diet and exercise are tricky enough before you have to worry about the hidden fats and calories that are weighing you down in your kitchen from simple ingredients such as cooking sprays. Lifestyle expert Allison Fishman shared some of the shocking truths about cooking spray on Dr Oz’s show, including which ones you should be spending your money on. She talked about the benefits of an Olive Oil Mister, Pam Organic Cooking Oil, Baker’s Joy Spray and Organic Sunflower Oil. These could help you with Calorie Cutting Recipes, Skinny Chef Secrets from today’s show, which also highlighted Kitchen Weight Loss Gadgets.
According to Allison Fishman, the zero calorie claims that cooking sprays make are based on a spray that lasts 1/3 of one second. But in reality, we typically spray for three to five seconds per use, which could be adding more calories to our dishes without us even realizing it.
Dr Oz: Baker’s Joy Spray Review
Allison said the best baking spray is Baker’s Joy. This spray is easy to see in your pan, which can help keep you from using too much spray. Using flour or shortening to line a baking dish, like your grandmother probably did, could add 254 calories and 25 grams of fat to your culinary masterpiece. But Baker’s Joy contributes only 50 calories and 4.5 grams of fat.
Dr Oz: Pam Organic Cooking Oil Review
Pam Organic Cooking Oil is another product designed to keep you from weighing your meals down with calories and fat. Regular butter has 204 calories and 24 grams of fat in one serving. Pam Organic Cooking Oil has a paltry 18 calories and 2 grams of fat, by comparison. Which one would you choose?
Dr Oz: Spectrum Organic Sunflower Oil Review
Do you do your own frying at home, or do you eat most of your fried meals out at restaurants or fast food stores? If you’re using Peanut Oil at home, it’s time to rethink that. Use the oven instead, as in the Chicken Fried Steak Remake Recipe from this episode.
For an even lighter meal, Spectrum Organic Sunflower Oil can help give your dinner a crisp crunch without the calories. Peanut Oil uses 636 calories and 72 grams of fat to give you a fried meal. Spectrum Organic Sunflower OIl only has 29 calories and just two grams of fat.
Dr Oz: Olive Oil Mister Review
Olive Oil is perfect for cooking vegetables, but are you using too much in your kitchen? An Olive Oil Mister can help you get control of your portions, and you can find one at your favorite health food store.
Just put Olive Oil in the Mister and pump it a few times to prime it. Instead of using 1/4 cup of Olive OIl and putting 477 calories and 54 extra grams of fat into your recipe, switch to a mister. You’ll notice the difference, because a mister typically averages about 41 calories and 5 grams of fat.
It’s crazy to think how much fat and calories we’re hiding in our recipes. I know I’ll think twice the next time I’m in the kitchen. Are you shocked by these revelations?
