Eliminating oil

As I transitioned to a Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle eliminating oil was the last and probably hardest step. I’ve found that going 100% oil free is almost impossible unless you prepare all your own food.

But when you are cooking for yourself oil can easily be replaced with water or brooth and when baking things like unswetened apple sauce or banana are great substitute. This article provides some details.

I like chips with salsa and guacamole. I have yet to find a bag of chips in the store that doesn’t contain oil. So the solution is that we’ve started making our own chips using street taco tortillas. We buy these mission tortillas at the grocery store.

Mande has perfected cooking them in the oven. And then we enjoy with homemade salsa or guacamole. These pictures were used to make tostados. Cutting them in half before baking makes great chips.

So until we try mixing up our own tortillas this is a good option for oil free chips.
