Ask the Diva: Is a Foreman Grill a Healthy Way to Cook?

Q. I have recently bought a George Foreman Grill and love how easy it is to use and how great the food tastes. But, I am known to like foods that are unhealthy for me, so I have to ask: Is it really that much healthier than say, boiling or baking foods, if you use the same sauces?
