Corn Detox Recipes

-

Corn is nutritious and healthy but…

there’s something special about grilling corn on the cob and summer time fun!

Not only is this veggie great on the grill, but it’s one of my favorites frozen, canned, creamed or fresh.

Nutritionally, it contains folate, phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, protein, potassium, fiber, thiamine, and panthotenic acid.

It also has Vitamins A, C, E and K. That’s an impressive list of nutrients.

Corn Health Benefits

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Heart Health

It’s rich in folate, which lowers the levels of homocysteine, an amino acid. Homocysteine is an intermediate product in a metabolic process known as the methylation cycle. Homocysteine can damage blood vessels which can lead to heart disease.

Lung Health

It’s rich in beta-cryptoxanthin, a carotenoid found in the highest quantities in corn, papaya, tangerines, red bell peppers, oranges, pumpkins, and peaches. The carotenoid may notably lower the risk of lung cancer.

Energy Booster

1 cup of this veggie supplies fifteen percent of the daily value of pantothenic acid. Pantothenic acid is used by mitochondria to change complex carbs into glucose which supplies energy. The beta-carotene contained in this veggie boost supplies of hemoglobin, a protein that carries oxygen to your cells and helps prevent fatigue.

Rev Your Metabolism

Rich in manganese, this mineral rouses your thyroid gland to create more triiodothyronine, a hormone that boost your metabolic rate.

Healthy Recipe – Corn Muffins

Muffins are excellent for breakfast, with soups, stews, salads and much more!

Corn Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey (if you prefer sugar, substitute it)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup corn meal
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Kernels from 2 ears of corn

Instructions:

  1. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, corn meal, and then sift.
  2. Mix eggs, butter (melted), honey and milk together.
  3. Add this to the flour mix and blend until the ingredients are all moist.
  4. Fold in the kernels of corn.
  5. Fill the muffin cups (I use Pam and spray them before baking instead of using grease or lard).
  6. Bake at 425 degrees for approximately 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Servings: 12
