Hold the Butter………

One easy way to cooking healthier – Use cooking spray or small amounts of olive or canola oil instead of butter.

Love that Olive Oil……..

Brush or toss vegetables with a little olive oil to prevent them from drying out and sticking to the grill. Oil helps seasonings, like salt and pepper, stick better, too. You can also use a marinade or salad dressing for extra flavor and moisture.

Pass the Olive Oil……….

Instead of tossing a pat of butter into your frying pan, try a splash of extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil.

No oil needed………..

Don’t add any oil to the pasta water. Some cooks are under the false assumption that a glug of olive oil will keep the strands from clumping. But that’s nothing a good stir won’t solve, plus oil could leave your pasta too slick for saucing.

Cutting back on salt…….

Add a splash of olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice close to the end of cooking time or to cooked vegetables – it can enhance flavors in the same way as salt.

A little Olive Oil goes a long way………….

Adding even just a little olive oil can really bring out the flavors of a dish. Works great on vegetarian dishes and pasta dishes.
