Feel Light at your next Summer BBQWhen fried chicken and heavy potato salad drag you down, making you feel like taking a nap, this tasty corn on the cob treat keeps your summer barbecue hopping. The light and zesty qualities of cilantro, coriander, & lime lift your mood & restore your pep. Corn itself is a diuretic, making it a light, supportive choice at a festive summer day. Corn's sweetness seems to ease the heat of the day.
Cool cilantro is an antidote for a hot, sizzling summer day as well as pungent foods commonly found at a barbecue like tomatoes and chilis. Coriander and cilantro are different parts of the same plant, coriander being the seed while cilantro is the leaf. Although the leaves are cooling, the seeds are slightly warming. Both cilantro & coriander aid digestion, helpful in the heat of the day when appetite is sluggish.
