It’s never been a secret. The ladies at Prescribe Nutrition love a party. Sure we’re into “healthy” but you CAN have your cake and eat it too, so to speak. And no, we didn’t skip the wine either on this one.

Prescribe Nutrition was founded right along the same time that Yellow Barn Wellness came into the world. Kindred spirits, sister missions, lovers of each other? Yes, yes and YES.

We had such a wonderful time celebrating at Yellow Barn with Chef Ryan Hoffman’s ridiculously awesome appetizers and the amazing photography by the one and only Jackson Faith. The combination of these two, a great yoga class and an incredible barn community has us pinching ourselves. Grateful is an understatement.

Roasted Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad – 4 servings as a side

3 ears of corn, kernels removed
2 avocados, cubed
½ small red onion, diced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 lime juiced
Salt and pepper to taste
A few Tbsp’s cooking oil of choice.  I use Grapeseed oil

Steps:

  1. Shuck corn and cut kernels off cob.  **Serrated knife works best by standing large end of corn upright and cutting from top to bottom**
  2. Heat oil on medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes or until kernels start to darken giving a roasted appearance.  **I like to use a grill pan for this, but a heavy bottom skillet will work fine**
  3. Remove corn from heat and let cool in a bowl
  4. While corn is cooling, cut tomatoes, avocados and onion
  5. Add all cut ingredients to bowl with corn
  6. Finally, add lime juice, salt and pepper and mix
