Raw Sweet Corn and Cashew Chowder

The Good News Not only is yellow corn a good source of vitamin B, magnesium and thiamin, it also contains carotenoids (organic pigments with health benefits) not found in white corn. Ani Phyo likes to add a handful of vitamin A–rich spinach or soft lettuce to the chowder. "Then it becomes part-soup, part-salad," she says.
