When I think of summer time, I think about hanging by the pool while chowing down on burgers, hot dogs and of course corn on the cob! It is important to note that sweet corn is considered low FODMAP foods as long as you stick to 1/2 serving size. I HATE dealing with corn kernels getting stuck in my teeth, especially when you’re not at home. I have found the easiest solution is cutting the kernels off. I recently discovered this super cool gadget last time I was suffering Amazon. Has anyone tried it?
I love sticking to the basics with grilling corn but do you have a combination that you like to dress your corn up with? There are so many options out there!!
I was curious to learn about the health benefits of corn as there is much controversy when it revolves around high fructose corn syrup or when it’s genetically modified. Thank goodness for this article from Dr. Axe who describes corn as being a staple ingredient for over 8,000 years in South, Central and North America.
Some of the benefits of corn include:
High in Fiber
Source of Antioxidants
High in starch which helps slowly digest and keep you full
A delicious summer vegetable side dish to make for your family and friends.
- 2 husked corn on the cobs
- 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil (optional)
- salt & pepper to taste
- Preheat the grill for about 10 minutes on medium high heat.
- Place the husked corn on direct heat for about 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. The outer husk will look black/smoked once ready.
- Remove corn from the grill and once cooled enough to touch, remove the outer husk. Spread butter and seasonings onto the corn.
Stick to 1/2 cup serving of corn on the cob to remain FODMAP safe.
