What's not to love about corn?
The first corn of the season (around here) showed up at the Farmers' Maket last week and I could not have been happier. I love corn, I can put it in everything including desserts. Last year I gave into limiting my corn consumption based on feelings of guilt that corn is too startchy therefore treating it more like a carb....which is true, but...
I would not say that I am a "low carb" dieter but I do try and watch the nutritional ratios of how I balance my everyday meals. I rarely have a meal that leads with a carb, except oats/oatmeal. But I really felt I missed out last year and I won't make the same mistake this year. Bottom line is overeating is orvereating no matter what kind of foods you chose. Food, corn is not the enemy, overeating it regularly is....overeating anything regularly for that matter.
My next batch of chicken stock will include all the corn cobs I have in the freezer for some kind of corn deliciousness! And I'll be sharing with you my two newest favorite things....a corn dessert and a new kitchen tool....yup after cleaning out my kitchen I went and added something new!
