Carrots are good! They are bright, crunchy, and tasty. They have a sweeter taste on the palate which makes them an appealing vegetable but don’t be scared away because they are nutritious. 1 cup of carrots provides 53 calories, a good source of potassium and fiber, and an excellent source of Vitamin A. Carrots come in other colors besides the traditional orange like purple, white, and yellow. The colors provide different antioxidants but the flavor and the crunch are very similar to the orange carrot.
Carrots are a great root vegetable to include not only in the fall but all year round. Baby carrots are ready to eat for FitBites. Shredded carrots can be used in salads or slaws and also taste yummy roasted or grilled. At H3, we have a delicious coconut carrot soup that is colorful, delicious, and packed with nutrition. This warm soup is a fantastic addition to any fall recipe collection.
