Spray for Success:

Nonstick spray coating not only eliminates the mess of greasing pans, it also saves on fat and calories. For added pizzazz, look for roasted garlic-, olive oil-, and butter-flavored sprays. Compare the difference of using nonstick spray in place of oil, margarine, or butter

Nonstick spray coating (1-second spray), less than 1g fat, 7 calories

Butter/margarine (1 teaspoon), 4g fat, 35 calories

Oil (1 teaspoon), 5 g fat, 41 calories
