    my little book says that 4 squirts of fry light is one pp, now I roast a lot of veggies and give them all a good spritz, half a pepper would be about 2 and considering I would generally have a whole pepper, onions, mushrooms etc, it soon adds up! has anyone got an ideas of how to do my roasties without blowing points like this? xx

    I have the ww oil sprayer which dispenses 1 teasppon of oil which is 1 point. I find that is enough for a tray of roast veg ( tho it depends how moist you like them, I like them fairly dry). To be honest I find frylite has a chemically taste and would much rather have the real thing and count the points.
    The other method I have heard but not tried is to put a small amount of oil into a roasting bag and give them a good shake to coat and cook in the bag or you can shake them up in a normal polybag and then out onto a tray-sounds feasable but as I say havent tried it.

    The ww books say its free up to 4, then its 1 per 4 squirts after that. I checked and double checked it myself after having doubts.

    I can't really get on with fry lite. I would rather use the oil and point it and its good for you too. If I make roast potatoes for me and my OH, I use a tablespoon which is only 1pps for half.

    I think if I was making roasties I'd probably do this... I've had them with oodles of spraylite and its just... not really that nice :p

    Or maybe even use some egg/egg white?

    Well that's rubbish if it's a point for so little. I hadn't been taking the points for it either, and really don't think I'll bother using it at all now. I only bought the stuff thinking it was a relatively healthy alternative, but might as well use a little olive oil for the same points.
    Not that I fry much. I use frozen roasties, and tend to cook any meat I have on the George Foreman (which I wrote George Formby for at first...not quite the same thing!).
