This week’s bag features Carrots! Carrots are usually thought of as orange, but purple, white, yellow, red and black varieties also exist. Carrots are well-known for having high levels of antioxidants and beta-carotene. A serving of carrots has 113% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A. Research has shown eating carrots regularly has benefits for vision health, colon cancer prevention, and healthy skin, to name a few. If stored properly, in the coolest part of the refrigerator in a plastic bag or wrapped in paper towels, carrots can last for two weeks. What else is in this week’s bag?
