Wondering how to eliminate oil when sauteing? This episode will show you how...and why! One tablespoon of oil contains 120 calories and 100% of those calories come from fa!. Plus, the amount of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) found in oil is minimal...especially when compared to the whole food version. But who needs oil when you can saute in water, vegetable broth, coconut water, juice, beer, or wine and never miss the flavor (or the fat)?!
Try out this easy Saucy Glazed Mushrooms recipe from the talented and hilarious Chef AJ's book Unprocessed. These end up in her famous Disappearing Lasagna by the way! For more information about low fat eating, check out my book, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition.
