We've determined to eat "Clean" for the year. We've already been eating fairly clean, but now we're implementing recipes from Tosca Rena's Clean Eating Magazine as well as recreating some old favorites and finding new recipes wherever we can. I'm excited to try new things! If you're having problems finding ingredients You can find my favorite books, workout dvds and ingredients that I use in my Amazon store at the bottom of the page.

Misto: A Review
So in our purge of chemicals in our lives I got rid of the cooking spray. This I replaced with oil & a pastry brush. That, while providing excellent coverage, was a royal pain to use. I looked for an oil mister. I saw many but all of them had very bad reviews. So I kept using the pastry brush for months. After a number of months I figured there HAD to be a better way. Back online I went. This time I found a video in response to all the complaints about the Misto oil mister. It showed that you should only fill it half way at most; that you must pump it at least 10 times to use; and that the largest angle it can spray is 45 degrees. It was only $10, so armed with this info, I ordered one. I've followed the directions on the video and I really like the Misto mister. It needs a lot of pumping, 10 times doesn't get too far. And you will need to spray most things twice (or perhaps just slower than I do) to get sufficient coverage as this isn't aerosol but these seem like small things to be without chemicals or a pastry brush. I plan to order a 2nd one so I will have one for canola oil and another for olive oil.
