    Question

    I am making a dish tonight that calls for 1 T olive oil to cook some veg in until soften. If I were to not use the olive oil and use my canola spray would I subtract the cal. from the olive oil from the recipe?

    Yes. I would. Subtract the calories/points for the oil. If you normally count points for your usual non-stick spray don't forget to add them (some are not fat free)

    Thanks. That will lower the points alittle.

    Pretty much all of those sprays have points, if you used enough to equal the olive oil in the recipe. I find the nutrition info misleading, because it is just oil that mists so finely the calories are nominal. Further, the serving size says 1 second spray. If you read the fine print, a 7 second spray has 10 calories and a gram of fat, which essentially means 100% fat, like any other oil.

    Hope that helps.
