Oh how we love carrots! They are a funny little root crop so that you never know what you’re going to get until you pull them out of the ground! Usually orange in color, but sometimes they can be cosmic and come out purple, yellow, red or even white. Packed with health-promoting beta carotene, they promote good vision, especially night vision, and help combat health-damaging free radical activity.
Since carrots are root crops, make sure you scrub them well to get an residual dirt off of them. Peeling off the skin is optional, I usually don’t because I’m lazy like that. Grab a knife and chop away! Or you can be more fancy pants like this guy!
