This week’s featured food of the week is CARROTS! Carrots are a nutritional powerhouse packing over 400% Daily Value of vitamin A. They are also a great source of vitamin C, magnesium, potassium and many more essential nutrients. Carrots are an extremely versatile ingredient and can be used in a variety of different ways. We recommend buying full-sized organic carrots. If your local grocer carries the multi-colored carrots don’t be scared to pick some up. They can be used just like their orange cousins and provide you with some different nutrients from pigments not found in normal carrots.
