I think that is the average as there is 120 calories in a tbsp of extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil and also in grapeseed oil.

I second the Misto! I love it- I just use evoo in mine (I don't think it really flavors baked goods if I use it to spray the pan). They aren't terribly expensive and you can control what you put into it! Much less scary than all the other stuff in commercial sprays :)

Current goal:
- 32 by end of April.

Next goals: -
39 total by end of May.
-46 by end of June.

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

JJ625JONES: You might consider using a Misto oil sprayer. You won't be adding propellants to the atmosphere, either, as most spray oil cans emit. I have been using my Mistoes for years. I use less oil and cut the calories considerably. I have one filled with extra virgin olive oil and one with canola oil. I use to have a 3rd one filled with sunflower seed oil, but ran out of that.

Some people complain that their Mistoes get clogged up and can't be cleaned, but that is just because they don't clean them correctly. The key is to use really hot water and let it set for a bit and then pump pump pump until the water passes through easily. I resurrected two Mistoes, one from a friend and one from a sister, by just cleaning them out correctly.

Also 120 calories a 1 tbs of Olive oil. Both Canola and Olive oil provide a small amount of Omega3's .It is common that less expensive brands of Olive Oil , that other oils such as vegetable, corn, soybean,etc can be added. As long as it contains a slightly larger amount of Olive oil than the others, it can be marketed as Olive oil. Most cooking oils though, are blended having the larger amount of oil listed on the label.

I'm shocked! I just tracked my breakfast(scrambled eggs) and looked at the calories for 1 tbsp canola oil- it's more than the calories in 1 egg!
Might be switching to Pam.
