Cornmeal, a whole grain, is believed to have originated in Mexico or Central America. Corn has been a staple part of Native civilizations dating back to primitive times and the meal made from the corn is traced back about 7,000 years. Cornmeal contains many different vitamins, including niacin, thiamine, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, folate, and vitamins B-6, E and K. It contains 18 amino acids and minerals, such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.
Because cornmeal is a whole grain, studies show its consumption may lessen your chances of developing colon cancer, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis and other disorders of the bowel. Whole grain cornmeal moves through the intestines faster than other foods, which lessens the amount of time waste matter remains inside the body. Cornmeal actually enhances antioxidant action and it makes the cells in the colon stronger. Consuming this whole grain may benefit the heart and circulatory system and whole grains have been found to lower cholesterol.
A simple recipe for cornmeal is to stir 1 cup of cornmeal into 1 cup of cold water, then pour the cornmeal mixture into a pot containing 3 cups of boiling water. Put a cover of the pot and let the cornmeal cook on low for about 16 minutes. The cornmeal should have a thick consistency when it is done. You can use this in a breakfast meal by topping with your favorite diced fruits, a spoonful of honey, and chopped pecans, or you can make it into a dinner by topping with marina sauce and your favorite cheese alternative, or nutritional yeast.
