If you're trying to live healthy, you should be aware that the oil you use for cooking can heap on the calories -- typically over 100 calories per tablespoon!

Here are a couple simple steps you can take to minimize the amount of oil you use:

  1. Use non-stick pans.
  2. Put your oil in a mist spray bottle and give the non-stick pan a couple quick squirts before cooking. If you feel the dish you're cooking needs the oil for taste, you can spray a little extra oil onto the food before eating.
