Corn nutritionally, it contains folate, phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, protein, potassium, fiber, thiamine, and panthotenic acid. It also has Vitamins A, C, E and K. That's an impressive list of nutrients.
- 4 cups raw corn kernels cut from cob
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- 2 chile peppers (jalepeno)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 bunch cilantro
- ½ cup ground flaxseeds (preferably golden flaxseed) (if mixture is too watery, add more ground flax until mixture is thicker)
Mix all ingredients (except flax) in a blender. Add mixture to dry flaxseeds and mix thoroughly. Spread thinly onto dehydrator sheets, transferring onto the dehydrator trays as mixture dries and score into shapes.
You can dehydrate these chips at 105 degrees for about 12 hours or cheat a bit by increasing the temperature to 110 degrees for a slightly less drying time. You want to dehydrate enough to get a crispy chip as opposed to a chewy one.

|Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Healthy Guacamole|
|Category: Vegetarian Entrees|
Description: It's perfect for a potluck party because you make the components ahead of time or then bring your pastry bag to the event to stuff the tomatoes.
Tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
The carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Lycopene has been shown to help protect not only against prostate, but breast, pancreatic and intestinal cancers, especially when consumed with fat-rich foods, such as avocado, olive oil or nuts. (This is because carotenoids are fat-soluble, meaning they are absorbed into the body along with fats).
So this recipes makes a great team.
