This summertime favorite brings lots of sweetness to the table. Typically thought of as a simple staple, sweet corn in its freshest form is quite nutritious. Its high magnesium and vitamin C content offer anti-oxidant benefits and a protein content of 5-6 grams per cup. The high fiber in sweet corn offers digestive support as well.
For a simple but mouth-watering summer side, grill the sweet corn in the husk, and serve with a mayonnaise mixture of cumin and chili powder with some Cojita cheese. Squeeze a lime on top for a truly satisfying and classic Mexican sweet corn treat.
