    Hi guys,

    Am doing cc and am getting bored eating the same foods,i want to make stirfrys but dont know what to use instead of the oil? i dont like the spray oils,they taste funny,can i make it with just water ,soy sauce etc, I would appreciate some feedback into how you lot make ur stir frys.:). Iwill buy the stir fry veg pre packed from asda since it tells you the calorie count on them and is easier to cc.

    thanks.:)

    Good ol' Calorie Counting and a little bit of happiness :)
    I just use a little bit of water. I've never been a big fan of cooking oil anyway. Just use a little bit of water/soy sauce though, because a lot of these stir frys give off water when they're begin cooked and you don't want your dinner to resemble a swimming pool.

    Same as happyhealthy :) bung your chicken in and if it starts to catch on the pan a tablespoon or two of water will sort it.

    I was recommended Fry Light, not perfect but does the job!

    I use olive oil spray, it tends to last a work a little better on my pan (as far as sticking is concerned) than fry light - but it is more calories - 20 for a really good spray around (10ml).

    I'm looking into using coconut oil instead, as apparently olive oil becomes less good for you when used on a high heat :(

    That's not too bad at all really. Fry light's only 4? cals. 6 cals not much more in the scheme of things - i.e. still much, much better than 'proper' oil.

    Is coconut oil low cal? Coming from low carb, coconut oil was pretty much regarded as the god of all oils.

    yes i love mushrooms to, the pre packed ones have lots of beansprouts in them,which am not to keen on. Its amazing for a huge pkt of stirfry vegs its under 200 calories ,i like them with just sauce and noodles.x
