Cooking Without Oil - Yes It Can Be Done!

Can't cook without oil?  Think again. 

One tablespoon (do you really use just one tablespoon, be honest) of oil contains 120 calories and 100% of those calories come from fat!

Contrary to popular belief, oil, even olive oil, has little nutritional value and is not an essential part of a healthy diet.  You can get all the oil your body needs from the trace amounts found in whole foods and you don't need nearly the amount you think you do.

To learn more, check out this quick video from The Plant-Based Dietician(Julieanna Hever MS, RD) & Chef AJ on making Saucy Glazed Mushrooms, featuring sauteing onions without oil (it's easier than you think).
