Corn is an artificial crop that originated 7,000 years. Historians believe people in Central Mexico created corn. It was made from a wild grass species known as teosinte. Over time, Indians in North and South America started growing corn as a food source, and its popularity kept growing. Corn is still prevalent and can be used in dishes like roasted corn salad. 
Roasted Corn Salad is sweet, tart, and so darn delicious. It's made by roasting fresh ears of corn, then removing the sweet kernels from the cobs and tossing them with romaine lettuce, bright cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, fresh lime juice, apple cider vinegar, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, jalapeño, and sugar-free sweetener. But we couldn't stop there. We served the corn salad with a zesty, creamy avocado sauce and sliced avocados to take the flavor of the corn salad over the top. 

Is corn salad good for health?

Yes, corn is good for health. Corn contains lots of vitamin C. Vitamin C plays a role in protecting cells against damage and can play a role in preventing chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Corn also contains the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. These carotenoids are beneficial for eye health. Specifically, they can prevent the lens from being damaged. In contrast, cilantro can remove heavy metals from the body and help protect it from oxidative stress. Cilantro can also help you sleep better and reduce anxiety.   

Is it better to boil or roast corn?

It is much better to roast corn. Since corn is burned at a high temperature, it gets even sweeter than its boiled counterparts. 

Is corn good for losing belly fat?

Although corn can stimulate weight loss, it does not affect belly fat. Therefore, corn is not suitable for losing belly fat.   

Is it OK to eat corn everyday?

No, it is not OK to eat corn every day. Eating corn every day can lead to weight gain. It's best to eat corn in moderation.
