Why eat CARROTS?
Because they help your eyesight, right? Isn't this what mom always told us when she was trying to get us to eat them?
Carrots are high in Vitamins A, C, and K, and fiber. They help reduce the risk and lessen the severity of asthma and rheumatoid arthritis, and help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer. And yes, carrots help with vision, especially night vision.
Carrots can be sliced and added to many foods such as salads and pasta dishes, but one of the easiest ways to serve them is along side a yogurt or spinach dip.
