Watch You Mariniades
Just because you are cooking with lean meats doesn't mean it will end up that way on your plate. We usually want to add some pop to the meal by using marinades like barbecue sauce or other sugar-laden sauces and we believe that we are still safe. However, some marinades can add as much as 120 calories per cup! Most of us pour our sauces on our meats without repentance. Opt to add more spices to your meals like cayenne pepper, black pepper, chili powder, lemon zest, paprika, jerk seasoning, curry powder and saffron to add flavor. If you do use any marinade, watch your portions.
