This is the time of year when we love to make dinner on the grill. But watch the marinades. They can be full of salt, sugar and grease, as well as the calories you've been trying to burn off.
"What I encourage folks about making a tender marinade without adding salt and fat is to use flavored vinegars, fresh herbs, onions and garlic," says Ann Caldwell, registered dietician at Anne Arundel Medical Center.
Whisk in barely a tablespoon of olive oil, and brush some olive oil on the grill, too.
Can't make your own? She suggests grabbing a bottle of fat-free Italian dressing and turning that into a marinade for chicken, fish or meat.
