OR is it a starch?!
Growing up, my mom would never let us just have corn on the dinner table as the vegetable, there had to be something else. For example, if we were having rice and corn, there had to be something else because rice and corn are both starches. So like, friends of the internet, is corn a starch or a vegetable? Or can it be both? Is it quite possible that it is neither?!
I’m legit not going to google. I’d rather just live in this world where you are all smarter than I am and I’m ok with that.
I’ve decided that I need to start eating healthier. Not because it’s the New Year and that’s what people do, not because I want to lose weight. I have never been one to change my eating habits to lose weight. I feel like whenever I try to do that, it never works for me because I, quite frankly, am ok with being a fattie and looking as luscious and curvalicious as I do, because I’m awesome and I love myself. I don’t expect anyone else to see it that way but as long as I see myself that way then we are all ok.
But I have been feeling like bleh lately. No energy. Feeling heavy. Again, I am heavy, but my body just feels weighed down. So I have taken it upon myself to make some better choices, eat smaller portions and incorporate more vegetables into my life, and cut back on the pop and chips (currently drinking the last can of Coke from my fridge) And blog more. Blogging makes me feel lighter! So here I am at my new time! Same place though, but you already knew that. It’s like a pre-lent lent, but without the religious backing.
I did my yoga for the day today (day 5 – still rocking it!) and then decided to make dinner. I have a few packages of noodles that I would normally just make and eat the whole thing, but tonight I am being good. I had some leftover roasted chicken from my weekend meal prep, and some frozen vegetables and then I’d split it in two. Or so I thought!
When I opened the freezer, I had a bag of bean/carrot/cauliflower mix, and a bag of frozen corn. I was wanting and expecting frozen peas but nopes. I had none! So I did the corn, which got me thinking about what my mom would always say that corn isn’t actually a vegetable, it’s a starch and thus here we are. Back to my question: is corn a starch or a vegetable?
