Prevent unwanted padding this season with the diet tips experts rely on to save their own waistlines
Get your grill onIf your outdoor grill is knee-deep in snow and you think you have to wait until the spring thaw to start cooking healthy again, Falguni Parikh, a registered dietitian at Loyola's Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park, Ill., has two words for you: indoor grill.
"When it's cold outside, my husband and I use our indoor grill to make chicken, veggie burgers, and grilled vegetables like eggplant. Instead of frying or using a lot of oil, we marinate the protein or vegetables in fresh herbs and just a small amount of olive oil; then we coat the cooking surface with nonstick spray, and grill. It's so easy and you get that delicious charred flavor without the fat of other cooking methods."
