3 Reasons to Eat Carrots
Published: 6/28/2013

Carrots aren't just for rabbits - these inexpensive root vegetables are a versatile, delicious and nutritious addition to a healthy diet, and are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds. These familiar orange edibles also provide:

  1. Beta-carotene, a carotenoid pigment important for healthy vision.
  2. High levels of biotin, vitamin K, vitamin B6, vitamin C, thiamine and potassium.
  3. A significant amount of dietary fiber.

Use these tasty snacks as a healthy alternative to potato chips and other unhealthy processed foods - add some to a salad, steam them as a side dish, and you might even try them as a low-calorie, nutritious treat for your canine companion!

Use carrots in our Carrot Cake recipe!
