Quantum physics asserts that everything has a vibrational nature. Of course, this applies to the food we consume as nutrition. And each type of food, just like each person’s handwritten signature, reveals unique energetic properties that point to its nature and “personality.” This distinct vibrational nature of the different foods we eat is its energy signature.
In my upcoming book Vibrational Nutrition: Understanding the Energetic Signature of Foods, we explore over 400 (common and not so common food signatures) and how they influence body, mind and soul.
When I was shopping at the farmers market today I found Wild Violet Sweet Corn, it is one of the varieties of corn, I explore in my upcoming book, and I just had to share!

Corn energy, which comes in a multitude of varieties and colors, brings fertility and supports alignment with the earth’s energies, opening you to the cornucopia that life offers and providing an earthy groundedness. A sacred plant of Native Americans, it ushers in abundance on all levels, especially the joy and pleasure associated with the feminine. Corn supports increased creativity and birthing the projects that result, and is useful for fostering friendships and associations based on mutual support and growth by promoting the synergy needed to achieve goals larger than your own. This is the general vibration for corn, although you may choose specific varieties for additional information, below we highlight Wild Violet Sweet Corn.
Cumin-Scented Grilled Corn on the Cob Recipe
Desired number of ears of corn, husks still on
½ stick salted butter
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon chili powder
1 lime, juiced
Pinch of sugar
Salt and black pepper to taste
Leaving the husks attached, remove the silk and rinse the corn. Gently put the husks back in place, then soak the corn cobs in water for at least 30 minutes (the corn needs to be completely covered in water). Bring the butter to room temperature and whip in the cumin, chili powder, lime juice, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Remove the corn from the water and carefully peel down the husks, making sure you keep them intact, and spread the butter evenly on the corn. Put the husks back in place (they might be a little loose, but that is okay) and grill the corn, turning frequently, until the husks are charred and beginning to shrivel and the corn is tender, about 10 minutes.
This is such a forgiving recipe and not persnickety at all! Whatever temperature you’re already grilling at will work. This next part is completely optional, but my favorite way to finish off this style of corn is to very carefully (so you don’t burn your fingers) peel back the husk, and place the ears directly on the grill, and depending on how hot your grill is, grill for 1 to 3 minutes, turning the corn halfway through the grilling. Basically you’re looking for a nice char.
