National Corn on the Cob Day:
June 11 of each year is the day to celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day. Fresh corn on the cob is a summertime treat that people from all corners of the United States look forward to as we start the picnic season.
Here's a tasty recipe for Elote Callejero (Mexican style Street Corn) made vegan. This is Mexican street food at its finest. This recipe is great for serving family-style.
There are many different types of corn out there for you to choose from, but perhaps the most popular is sweet corn. It comes in a yellow variety and a white variety. The yellow tends to be sweeter. Because the white isn't often grown for large commercial uses, you're likely to find white corn sold by your local farmers.
Grilling corn on the cob can be confusing -- do you leave the husks on or take them off? Do you place them on the grill raw, or pre-cook them first? How long should they cook?
If you’re looking for a new spin on corn on the cob, try this vegan take that uses a flavorful, garlic-infused olive oil in place of butter. But losing the butter doesn’t mean that you have to lose the flavor — this corn on the cob recipe really showcases the corn’s sweetness while delivering a slight garlicky, herbaceous punch.
With the weather warming, people all over the country are firing up their grills. When most people think about grilling, they immediately think about meat. And when you’re a vegan at a barbecue, most people assume the only thing you can eat is a veggie burger — you know, the kind that comes out of the box tasting like the cardboard it was packaged in. But grilling is a terrific, nutritious and delicious way to prepare your veggies. From portobello mushroom caps to tender asparagus, veggies prepped over the grill take on an incredibly rich flavor.

Exercise plays an important role in diabetes management.6,7 Through regular exercise, the need for insulin injections or oral medications can often be reduced. This holds true not only for people with type 2 diabetes, but also to some extent for those with type 1. Exercising muscles have a voracious appetite for fuel. When an individual is engaged in regular aerobic exercise, glucose is able to enter the cells without the need for as much—or perhaps any—insulin.
This new and effective approach to diabetes is remarkably simple. Here are four simple steps to managing your blood sugar (and weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol) with diet.
The people who suffer from diabetes type 2 are exposed to an increased risk of a great number of diseases, especially the diseases of the cardiovascular system. A great number of people intake too many simple sugars every day and their body can’t produce insulin normally after some time. These researches have shown that the diabetics should increase the intake of certain kind of food in order to decrease the risk from heart diseases, nerve damage, weak eyesight and kidney failure.
