    Olathe Corn??????????????????

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    OK, I know, PB states corn is a grain and should be avoided....but anyone have an opinion on this Olathe corn?

    I've eliminated all corn from my diet but when Olathe corn is in season before I went PB, I ate it when it was available since it was so sweet and delicious. You can almost eat it raw since it was so tender and juicy. Cooking it takes less than a minute.

    GMO? Almost fits the PB rule if you can eat it raw, it's OK???

    Anyone experience this corn???

    I'd say no. Olathe corn is still corn; it is still a grain. Its sweetness is probably a factor of all the starch that its kernels contain. It is also most likely filled with a plethora of delicious anti-nutrients, lectins, starches, and incomplete proteins. You can eat many things raw, but that do not make them primal (raw corn is probably even worse in the anti-nutrient department versus is cooked alternative).

    Primal. No.

    Have an ear or 2. That's good corn.

    Lived in the Grand Valley in Colorado a couple years, and ate many an ear of Olathe Sweet Corn. BBQ'ed, steamed, boiled, slathered in butter and straight up plain. Great tasting stuff. Certainly not paleo food, and no longer on my food plan. I used to eat a lot of Twix and Doritos as well, and those are out too. Can't say I miss any of it.

    Hey, we have the 20% for a reason. Live it up while it's in season I say.

    Must wisely exercise judicial use of the 20% rule...;-)

    I used to drive through Olathe & think "mmmmm, sweet corn". Now if I'm passing through Del Norte, Craig, or coming over Genessee hill, I think "mmmmmm, bison". I haven't even craved corn on the cob since going primal. Even when surrounded by others chowin down on it.

    I just want to go visit my friend in Palisade & pork out on peaches!
