Make your own Vegetable Oil Sprayer.
Pam is an easy way to cook without adding a lot of oil to a pan, but it is full of chemicals and the aerosol is not so great for the environment. The solution is simple – make your own Vegetable oil sprayer.
Using an oil sprayer is a great way to save calories on food. You only need a small amount to do the trick.
The sprayer is easy to make. All you need is a spray bottle, olive oil and water. Just mix the solution using one part of olive oil to five parts of water. (any oil will do as well as olive oil.) Shake well before each use and you have your own vegetable spray with no additives that will save lots of calories when cooking.
A commercial product that does a similar thing is a Misto sprayer. I also have one of these that I got at Amazon. (affiliate link) To use this, you just add the olive oil (no water). It has a pump action which gives it the aerosol effect. (The DIY model above is a little more drippy but the retail product gives a fine mist. Both work well though).
Either way, you lose the chemicals and save money.
