So you’ve read all the books on healthy eating. They say to eat four servings of vegetables. How many do you think you’re eating? One or two because you had corn and green beans for dinner? Wrong! In fact, that one serving of corn wasn’t the first serving of corn you had today. You’ve been eating corn all day

The Daily Menu:
Breakfast = Cheerios, Milk & Coffee
Cheerios = Corn Syrup
Coffee Creamer = High Fructose Syrup

Lunch = Hamburger or Peanut Butter & Jelly
Hamburger = Cows fattened w/ Corn Meal
Peanut Butter & Jelly = High Fructose Syrup are in both

Dinner = ? Enough said yet?

Look at your labels and you will find that most of the grocery isle is corn. Serving count for the day = 12+.

While it might not sound like a bad thing, you need to process what corn is first to decide if this is truly healthy eating. Corn is mostly starch and we are told to avoid eating starch in large quantities. Then you need to think about what starch is. Starch breaks down into sugar and I don’t need to tell you that we already eat too much of that.

Therefore, on the healthy scale of veggies, corn gets two thumbs down. In the end we all need to read labels. If we do that and keep track of what we eat, not only will we be healthier but we’ll feel better and become more productive.

Next time you’re cruising down the grocery isle, avoid corn and smile. You know the truth and you will be the winner for knowing.

Here’s a list of all the things – or at least a very good attempted list – that corn is in.
