Cutting out hydrogenated oils was one of the first things our family did in our “Great Food Revolution of 2012″. We were able to swap out olive and coconut oil for most of our cooking and baking, one of the things I wasn’t looking forward to replacing was non-stick cooking spray. We eat eggs every morning and I wanted to find an easy option. While it’s true that we could use a little bit of butter or just drizzle olive oil in the pan, I felt like we were using too much at a time and adding more fat to the meals than I wanted. Don’t get me started on trying to grease the waffle iron, either.
Along came the Misto Olive Oil Sprayer. You fill it about halfway with your favorite olive oil, pump the handle a few times and you now have olive oil cooking spray. We use less each time, make less of a mess and it is much healthier than traditional non-stick cooking spray. If you are trying to make some changes to your eating habits, this is a simple swap.
Amazon currently has the Misto Olive Oil Sprayer for as low as $12.95 or a 2-pack for just $18.95. Shipping is free with Amazon Prime or with a qualifying $25 purchase. Costco has sold these in the past as well.
If you’re looking for a great olive oil option, our favorite that we have tried is the Zoe Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It is cold-pressed (which means very minimal processing), has great light flavor and is inexpensive. It’s great to cook with and makes a wonderful homemade salad vinaigrette.
