Edamame (soy beans) are rich in vitamin C, and one of the few natural sources of Vitamin E. They are an excellent source of protein as well.
Tomatoes contain lycopene, which may promote cardiovascular health and helps prevent skin from sun damage. They are full of antioxidants, and packed with anti-cancer benefits. Research published in the journal of Cancer Epidermal Biomarkers Prevention shows that regular consumption of this power fruit can help lower the risk of prostate cancer in men.
Corn is not the most nutritious vegetable, but it is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, as well as sodium. It’s also a good source of dietary fiber, thiamin and folate. It is very high in carbs, but some of the fiber helps balance this vegetable. Eating it with protein, such as edamame, will avoid raising your blood sugar. Due to its high carbohydrate content, corn can be made into corn syrup – a cheap sugar substitute. Don’t confuse corn syrup with corn sugar (high-fructose corn syrup), which I will discuss later in my blog.
