Answer this as you wish: If I had more time. . .

1. I would make my own refried beans and hummus with low salt.
2. I would bake high fiber biscotti with Stevia or Splenda because sugar raises my blood sugar.
3. I would cook a batch of healthy meals and freeze them for later, etc.

Ditto wholefoodnut. Perhaps I should just say if I had more time, I'd write up a list of all the things I don't have time to get done!

4. I would figure out how to make veggie burgers low in salt and bake them instead of fry them.

Vickie, I have a list about a mile long just to get my house the way I want it.... grins. Right now just time to get it clean and relatively organized would make me feel better..it's a mess, with too many projects in the works.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

I am hoping to spray the veggie patties with oil cooking spray, similar to PAM only less expensive, and figure out how many minutes to bake them.

This is the idea that I received in an email from a healthy site: "Make your own vegetarian burgers with cooked black beans, mushrooms, seasonings, and egg or oatmeal. Form into patties and pan grill." They did not give any advice about measuring or serving size. I just thought I could bake them to keep from frying them.

Sounds good, you could use any type if bean. I would cook the mushrooms first.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

re the cooking spray you mentioned, Why would you put silione, propane or butane into your body?
Essentially, cooking spray is oil in a can, but not just oil; it also contains lecithin, which is an emulsifier, dimethyl silicone, which is an anti-foaming agent, and a propellant such as butane or propane.

And it really doesn't save you calories, The small print says "For fat-free cooking," but that works only if you are skilled enough to limit your spray to the stated serving size of a "1/4 second spray." Elsewhere on the can, it states that a one second spray covers a 10-inch skillet, so four times the serving size. This one-second spray would push the fat content over 0.5g, which means the nutrition facts label couldn't round it down to 0g of fat. Few of us limit ourselves to a one-second spray, however. Most of us spray for two or three seconds, and some of us longer than that.

Instead,put some olive oil or coconut oil in a small spritz bottle an use it, I also use this for spraying on my salad.

and If I had more time I'd travel more learn more about this big beautiful world.

Thank you, mummydee. My daughter uses the spray oil and says one spray is 7 calories. I don't know where she came up with that number. I just believed her. I'm going to look for a spritz bottle like you mentioned. Smile

Mummydee, I officially filled my new spray bottle for olive oil up last night. I need to get a few more for different things but they only had one color.

I quit using hair mousse when I read the label and the first ingredient was propane. Now I use a bit of coconut oil to tame my hair.

I will get a couple chard recipes posted, 'twas hard to read them with the power off last night.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

Yeah you!! and if you're really particular do an experiment into a bowl. Squeeze once and have a look, i'm sure you can eye ball a tspn.. do 2 and see what you get etc... then, you'll have a good idea of what you use... Aerosol cans are harmful and no way of knowing what you're getting...

Jeri, what else do you want to use the oil mister sprayer thingy for? To spray vinegar or just different types of oil? I can't wait to go shopping and get one. Not sure if I need more than one.

This one doesn't work very well, no mist only a stream. Will have to try another kind, may get out today, not sure. This is a hibernate weekend to get things caught up. Actually, not measurement particular. One of my biggest challenges on this journey has been to remember to measure. I'm pretty good at guessing.

Deb, this îs my first, not sure yet. Mummydee uses them for salad dressings. I have bought salad dressings in sprayers that worked well. I have lots of the squirt type bottles they often use on food net work.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

I forgot, sorry, the dollar store ones or cheaper ones usually have only one setting but one from a kitchen store has a few, stream, spray and mist...

I use the cheaper ones with the stream for cleaning..... water, vinegar and lemon juice and its the best non toxic and cheap way to clean just about anything! So don't throw that bottle away Jeri!
