"Delish! Forget the negative rude comment. In fact, the comment has no truth to it."

"This is in answer to Juansmom: Most cooking sprays do have some oil in them, but their secret "low-cal" ingredient is lecithin. Although we tend to think of lecithin as "unnatural," in fact, it is quite natural, and much of the lecithin used today is extracted from the ubiquitous soy bean in much the same way oil is. In addition to its oil-like qualities, there is also evidence that it may lower cholesterol (some studies have had conflicting results, however). If anyone is interested in reading further about this much used but little known ingredient, I recommend a trip to Wikipedia."

"Cooking Spray? Really? Are we incapable of brushing on some olive oil? "Cooking spray" doesnt even sound like it is made out of anything real. Why don't we just spray with WD40? I'm SOOO tired of so-called "healthy" recipes that use ingredients that are not natural foods. YUCK!!!"

"I was a bit skeptical when it said I wouldn't miss the meat - I didn't!!! This sandwich was so delicious - made it on my George Foreman Grill. Can't wait until lunch tomorrow so I can have another!"
