Attention, attention! Healthy Eats is making its TV debut today. Toby and I will be on Good Morning America Health this afternoon, talking about healthy grilling and prepping some deliciously fresh dishes. Want a sneak peak? Here are the recipes we're making.

Making your own BBQ sauce means you get to control the quality of your ingredients -- there's no high fructose corn syrup in this recipe. Fresh peach jam (look for it at your farmers' market!) adds a natural sweetness that you won’t find in bottled sauces; the mustard gives it a little kick. Add a light basting on chicken, shrimp, pork or veggies and you’ll be hooked.

This simple salad is more exciting than your usual leafy greens (it travels well, too). Fresh vegetables and herbs add vitamins A, C and K; pine nuts add healthy fat and a bit of crunch. Try making it with whole-wheat couscous for some extra fiber.

This salad is perfect for all the fresh vegetables and herbs coming into season. It’s packed with flavor, vitamin A and potassium, and delivers them in a light 215 calories per serving. I made a large batch a few days ago, and my husband and I can’t stop eating it. The combo of fresh corn, tomatoes and basil screams summer!

UPDATE: Watch the segment HERE -- and let us know if you make these easy dishes yourself.
