Since the intense heat of the grill brings out food's natural flavors, there's no need to cook with a lot of calorie- and saturated fat-laden oil or butter. Instead, keep your marinades heart-healthy by choosing monounsaturated oils such as olive, and use lower-calorie spice- or citrus-based marinades, sauces, and rubs to add flavor. Along with making the most perfect vegetables, ever- a grill basket can be used for other things -like meat and fish- Put the skewers away..for now :)
