Don't forget to eat your carrots!
Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin C, Beta Carotene & Fiber!

To improve your overall health, start incorporating carrots into your diet and drinking carrot juice and other vegetable blends!

The importance of the carrot:
Upping your fiber for one! Carrots deliver valuable fiber to our bodies and other important nutrients that the American diet is generally lacking. The experts tell us that we need to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Orange or yellow fruits and vegetables are loaded with carotenoids, which are special nutrients known to boost your body's immunity to cancer. Therefore, people who eat lots of produce have a much lower rate of developing cancer than people who do not.

Eating carrots may also lower your blood cholesterol levels according to a study by researchers at the USDA. Study participants who ate 7 ounces of carrots a day for three weeks had, on average, an 11 percent reduction in cholesterol levels. They say that this effect was most likely due to calcium pectate, a type of soluble fiber that is present in carrots.

Vitamin A is derived from beta-carotene and carrots are the leading source of this substance in the American diet. With the exception of beets, carrots also contain more sugar than any other vegetable out there which explains why they make a very satisfying snack too.

Carrot Facts:
>Carrots are in season all year round!
>Carrots should be firm, not rubbery. If tops are still attached, they should be green and fresh looking.
>Remove the tops before refrigerating and store carrots in a plastic bag, unwashed.
>Bagged carrots keep for up to two weeks in the vegetable bin of the refrigerator. >Keep them away from apples, which emit a gas that can give carrots a bitter taste.
>Baby carrots are sweeter and require no peeling; only trimming and scrubbing; others should be pared to remove the outer skin.
>Refresh limp carrots in a bowl of ice water.
