One great way to get flavor without adding a lot of calories ... MARINADE! Meat, fish, veggies & more, the possibilities are endless! It takes a little planning ahead, but the results are soooooo worth it. Last night I used a store bought teriyaki sauce to marinade our steak. I defrosted it in the morning and let it marinade all day long.
Here are a couple of my favorite marinade recipes (from allrecipes.com, my fav!):
We love meat in our house, it's hard to imagine a dinner without it. The trick to keeping it healthy is to pick lean meats and watch your serving size. In most cases 4-5 ounces in all you need. I usually cut a piece in half after it is cooked. Fill up your plate with fruits and veggies for a complete meal. We had a variety of fruit (I love summer because of all the fresh fruits available for cheap!) & a simple salad with a blush wine vinaigrette. I topped it off with a piece of sourdough bread (been loving this lately!)
