Monsoon snack: Healthy corn

Eating roasted corn with a dash of lemon juice rubbed over it during the monsoon season, is quite simply one of life's greatest pleasures.

This comfort food not only tastes delicious, but it boosts your overall health, by providing your body with numerous nutrients.

-Your favourite monsoon snack - is rich in fibre, which helps improve digestion. Add a cup of yellow corn to your diet, to fill your body with 3.6 grams of dietary fibre. This fibre will help control your hunger and aid in weight loss.

-Corn is rich in vitamin C, niacin, folic acid. All these nutrients help prevent heart disease.

-It increases your mental ability and boosts your memory, as it contains thiamine.

-Consuming corn also helps lower cholesterol and prevents colon cancer.

-Worried about your vision? Add corn to your diet. This tiny food is loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin, two phytochemicals, which helps improve eye health.

-Fewer calories - A cob of corn has about the same number of calories as an apple and less than one-fourth the sugar. In other words, it can be one of the healthier foods.

Word of caution
Just remember, while sweet corn is a healthy treat, corn slathered in butter and doused in salt is not a healthy option.

So go ahead and enjoy this guilt free snack!
