Baby corn... to eat ore not?

It comes in the packages of frozen veggies I buy (it's cheaper than fresh right now), so do I eat it (I have) or discard?

Particularly because you're eating it before it has a chance to fill up with sugar/starch, and you eat the whole thing, cob and all. Definitely vegetable.

The question was about corn. Not sweet potatoes. Surely she doesn't need a list of all the vegetables in the world that she can eat.

The sweet potatoes were organic too! How can you beat that. Unless you grow your own.

I agree. Whatever-grain or not. Its up to you. However, gmo! Don't eat. Even you want to save money. Buy something more nutritious. Veggies are not the end all be all. How about some raw goat milk (I get a gallon for 3 dollars) and make your own yogurt. Or sweet potatoes (just picked up ten pounds at 99 cents a pound) That will last be a month or more. More bang, nutritionn for your buck than a bag of veggies (especially if non-organic ).

Run an ear of sweet corn through cronometer, and tell me it's zero nutrition.

Fresh corn (baby or not) is more veggie than grain in my estimation.

Nothing that cute could possibly be bad for you; I say eat it as long as you hold both ends and munch it as though it's a large ear of corn.

Corn is technically a grain

Friends, corn is not a vegetable. It???s not. We are perplexed as to when corn entered the American dietary lexicon as a veggie, because it???s a grain ??? and a really unhealthy grain at that. Corn is the most sugary, starchy, empty grain there is. You???re better off with white rice ??? seriously. (Not that we recommend eating a lot of white rice, because brown rice is higher in fiber and protein.)

It is certainly GMO corn. Avoid.

Technically, paleo does not include corn. I do eat it occasionally though and experience no noticeable problems with it.
