Delightful Discoveries - Carrots Are Good for You 12.30.10

Raise your hand if you love carrots!!

Ahem, I said... Raise your hand if you love carrots!

Hmmm...Maybe you're simply having trouble reading this because your eyesight is going because you simply don't eat enough carrots! After all, Bugs Bunny never needed eyeglasses - and why not? That's right, carrots! Turns out that wascally wabbit knew what he was talking about when it came to this superfood.

The beta carotene in carrots is excellent for your eyes, helps keep your arteries clear and may prevent tumors from growing. Nutrient dense carrots are also rich in fiber, low calorie and taste good, even raw! Even if you were aware of all of these great facts about carrots, did you know that those gorgeous orange beauties were actually derived from their purple carrot cousins way back in the ancient days of Afghanistan agriculture?

And of course, not only do carrots taste good and they're good for you, but their coloring has inspired the awesome items you're seeing here today! Let's check them out!
