8 Summer Superfoods You Should Be Eating


Fresh corn is a true summer classic — but is it a grain or a vegetable? This all-American favorite is typically classified as a starchy vegetable when eaten fresh, but considered to be a grain when dried (like popcorn). Either way, these versatile yellow pellets are packed with health boosting nutrients and are sure to please even the pickiest palates. I love simply grilling ears of fresh corn and spritzing them with lemon juice and cayenne pepper, but you can just as easily slice the kernels off the cob for a tasty addition to salads and salsas. Take advantage of this low-cost crop at your local farmer’s market and enjoy this fresh pick in place of your “usual” starch.
