Flavor Without Fat
A small ear of white or yellow corn has 1 point. A large ear of either variety has 2 points. A juicy ear of corn dripping with butter is a treat, but the fat will double, triple or quadruple your points. One teaspoon of margarine or butter has 1 point. A tablespoon of a buttery spread has 1 to 2 points, depending on the type. To save points, make your corn flavorful with a sprinkle of no-sodium seasoning or fresh herbs and spices like dill or cilantro.
