Sauces and Marinades | Flavoring food without calories

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Whenever I recommend healthy eating tips to people, I always hear the same song, "but I like my food with flavor," or "baked chicken doesn't taste good." Honestly, these are cop out excuses because eating healthy can be quite delicious. Marinades and sauces are great for adding flavor to healthy food with only a few calories (just make sure you don't overdo it on the sauces). Depending on the marinade or sauce, you can add it to beef, pork, chicken, lamb, seafood, and even vegetables and grains.
