The less you use (of everything) equals less that needs to be produced … and that reduces our footprint on the earth.
With that in mind, here’s a great tip, compliments of Chef Paul Prudhomme. Instead of pouring cooking oil into the pan before adding the other food (vegetables, meat, etc.), drizzle a little oil on the food itself, mix it up, then toss it into a dry pan. You’ll still get the benefits and flavor of the oil but you’ll use a lot less. And hey … not only will you be saving the earth; you’ll get fewer calories in your food. Thanks, Chef Paul.
