    3 Delicious Carrot Recipes

    Written by  on  in Food & Recipes

    Run out of ideas for what else to do with these crunchy orange beauties other than eating them raw and tossing them into salads? We love this underdog veggie for their crunch factor and how they pack a nutritional punch.  Carrots are full of vitamins and minerals which are good for your health and your green smoothies.

    We love adding carrots to our green smoothies for the health factor and we also think carrots make our green smoothies taste great. We usually add raw sliced carrots to our blenders but we know that sometimes blenders just can’t take the heat from blending up their fibrous, crunchy goodness.

    If you’ve tried adding raw carrots to your hard-working machine and it just can’t get past those chunky little bits, then this one’s for you.

    5 REASONS WE’RE CRAZY FOR CARROTS!

    1. Kick Cancers A** : The chemical compounds in carrots have shown to decrease the risk of certain cancers and other chronic illnesses.
    2. Fountain of Youth: With carrots’ high amounts of antioxidants, they are a great all-nnaturalanti-aging veggie.
    3. Eye Like You: Carrots are high in Vitamin A, which help protect the health of your eyes — helping you see for years to come.
    4. All Natural Toothbrush: That’s right. By chomping on these bad boys, they help clean your teeth and gums — no toothpaste required.
    5. Easy on the Wallet: Available in most areas all year round, carrots are one of the cheapest veggies you can find in the produce section, which helps you keep more of your hard-earned moolah.
