Sauted Spinach and Corn

This is an easy side that will work well with any meal.  Use it as a side at your next BBQ, or even stuff it in a tortilla with some grilled chicken.   Spinach is one of my favorite green vegetables.  It is full of many great nutrients including vitamin K, A, C, manganese, and folate,  It is also contains vitamin E, several B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, potassium and copper.  Corn has had a bad name recently due to the fact that it is believed to be one of the causes of the obesity epidemic.  No one food causes obesity.  Any food used in surplus can cause obesity, and out of the carbohydrates corn is less likely then many other processed foods.  Corn is actually a great source of many nutrients. It is a great source of thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium.  It is also a good source of potassium, pantothenic acid, vitamin E, and A.

Corn, can, frozen, or removed from cob

Heat oil in pan
Add corn and cook until slightly brown.
Add spinach.  Cover pan to allow spinach to wilt, stiring ever so often.
