WFMW- the magic of Parkay

For my first ever Works For Me post I wanted to share a great way to cut the fat and have really flavorful dishes!  If you are a regular reader you know that I used to weigh over 225 pounds,  but after WW I lost 95 pounds.
So one of my secrets is Parkay* butter spray, it has no fat, it has no calories, it has a lot of taste though.  I use this like you would use butter, and I know that I wouldn't and couldn't have lost nearly as much weight as I have without it!
I cook big, because Daddy eats big, I cook breakfast and large dinners everyday.  So if you have a baked potato for instance, forget about the spray, just open the lid and pour some butter on.  I bake with it, if a recipe calls for a stick of butter I pour 1/2 cup of butter spray and use that, no fat no calories!
I pour it over steamed vegetables and even spray it on popcorn.  I don't think I have found anything that it doesn't work with.  I have even made butter cream icing with it for cinnamon rolls.
So that is a great way to cut fat and calories without taking away from taste, it works for me and for more great WFMW ideas go over to Rocks in my Dryer.

I've used it on steamed veggies before, but I had no idea you could use it for baking. I'm such a butter addict, I should try this!
