Grilled Corn

Summer has come to Egypt. And what a perfect stroll in the night with busy streets full of cars and people specially on thursday and friday nights. While strolling with the family we bumped into this woman vendor who was grilling corn along the way and I asked for 5 .Incidentally, did you know that corn is packed with health benefits ? Despite the lack of green, it really is a healthy veggie.  Here are just one reason to enjoy those tasty niblets:

Corn is a great source of fiber

One cup of corn provides 18.4% of the daily recommend intake of fiber.  Fiber has been shown to help lower cholesterol levels and to help reduce the risk of colon cancer. Fiber is also useful in helping to lower blood sugar levels in diabetics.  Besides that, fiber keeps the digestive system regular.
So I hope you’ll fire up the grill and keep your body happy with this wonderfully tasty dish.  It’s freshness  and health benefits are sure to make you holler… This is SO yummilicious!

 In Native American Usage , the word for corn means " our life " or " our mother " or
" she who sustain us " .:)
