Counting cooking oil ?

  1. Counting cooking oil ?


    I recently began cooking with coconut oil, switched from olive oil. So my question is how do you count your cooking oil, how do you judge how much was absorbed into the food, primarily eggs in my case, or how much you ended up pouring down the drain ? I'm currently doing carb nite solution and have keeping count of everything and was curious as to how to count the cooking oil.

    Thanks

    I do about the same thing as you. Count it as 1TBS or however much you use. If the oil is hot the food will absorb most of it while cooking and make sure it's cooked well.

    After I'm finished cooking there isn't much of anything left in the pan

  3. Ya it's tough as some foods will absorb it more than others. You can get all technical and measure by weight but I think it's best to just eyeball it.

  4. i count whatever i put in the pan

  5. Whats ever left in the pan, let the pan cool off and drink whats left in the pan, do the same thing to your plate, just make sure no one is looking.

  7. i count whatever I use. I put about 3 spoons in my protein shake usually and then I'll still cook with olive oil sometimes so I dont go through my Coconut oil too fast.
