The Power of Carrots
These root vegetables are well-known for helping with eyesight, but don’t underestimate their additional benefits!
Carrots can do much more for your health. In nature, the more colorful a fruit or vegetable, the more anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties it has, so the next time you cook with carrots, choose the darker, more colorful options - like purple carrots, which are packed with healthy pigments. Purple carrots have high levels of Vitamin C and antioxidants, which protect against colon cancer, relieve rheumatoid arthritis and even help prevent varicose veins. White carrots, on the other hand, have few pigments and therefore fewer health properties. Wondering what to do with those fresh carrots you just picked up at the market? Try one of the recipes below!
