Today's dinner was a simple one- baked salmon with terriyaki marinade, steamed broccoli and corn on the cob. A couple of notes however, for the marinade I did use tamari (wheat free soy sauce). Most soy sauces aren't actually made from soy beans but wheat and therefore are not gluten free. If you don't have an issue with soy, you can use tamari which is essentially soy sauce that is actually made from soy beans. However, if you are also soy intolerant, there is another option, coconut aminos, which can be found at most health food stores.
The other side note is about corn. Corn is one of the most genetically modified foods available. However, corn on the cob and eating corn is NOT genetically modified, while any of your corn byproducts (corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, corn starch, corn flour, vegetable oil, etc) will more than likely be a GMO product unless otherwise stated. These products are mostly found in your processed foods which should be avoided anyways. Corn can be a common allergen, however, I find that most people are reacting because of the over consumption (processed foods) and likely the fact that the overconsumption is from GMO sources (corn, along with wheat/gluten and soy, is pretty much added to EVERYTHING processed and/or premade). A regular ear of corn will likely not bother most people which is why I haven't eliminated it from our diet. Everyone is different, however, so it is something that would need to be evaluated on a case by case basis.
