3 Delicious Healthy Marinade Recipes!
Eating clean sounds easy enough—until dry meat has you running to slather on the sauce, that is! Add flavor to your dishes—without tacking on extra sugar, fat, and calories—with these macro-friendly recipes.

Let's face it, eating "clean" or "healthy"—however you want to describe it—usually sounds boring. Plain grilled meat or fish with boiled brown rice and steamed veggies is hardly going to set your taste buds alight and get your tummy purring.
But you don't have to choose between being fit or enjoying flavor. I'm here to show you how you can add delicious taste to your meals without messing with your macros. Let's dig in!
1. Clean Ketchup
You don't have to be a kid to understand the power of ketchup. Too bad the real stuff is filled with high-fructose corn syrup. My version of this classic condiment is made of all natural ingredients.
It packs the full flavor of your favourite tabletop condiment without the ladles of sugar and chemicals ketchup usually comes with.
Feel free to dress up your sauce any way you see fit: cayenne pepper for a spicy kick, fresh mustard for tang, or Worcestershire sauce for a little extra punch.
2. Creamy Lemon and Mint Dressing
Next up is a fantastic creamy dressing that's full of fresh and zesty flavors but is completely fat-free! Yes that's right—I said creamy and fat-free. This recipe is great to use to top salads, smother grilled chicken, or dip veggies in. Still don't believe me? Well, it can be done—here's how!
3. Fiery Peri-Peri Rub
This sauce is one of my favorites. Bursting with rich and smoky flavors, it packs a seriously tasty punch. Add as little or as much as you like—I promise having a little extra won't destroy a day of healthy eating. My favorite way to enjoy this spicy rub is mixed with a little olive oil, rubbed onto some juicy steak, and cooked on the barbecue. Give it a whirl. This recipe takes minimal effort but reaps maximum rewards!
