Just about everybody loves carrots. You use carrots from the time you’re a baby until you die. Which means that they are easy to digest and very healthy. I’m sure you remember as a child being told to eat your carrots because they are good for your eyes.

Carrots are healthy because they contain beta carotene and have a high fiber content. Carrots are rich in vitamin B8, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K, potassium, copper, manganese, folate and panthothenic acid.

Another great thing about carrots is that you can use them in so many different ways – pureed, in soups and stews, raw, or juiced. Which ever way you use them, they taste great and are packed with vitamins and minerals.
