A Carrot a Day Keeps the Doctor Away!

A carrot a day keeps the doctor away! 3 ways to get your carrot every day

 

We all know that carrots are good for us but do you know how good?

 

Carrots are a great source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamins A, C & K, potassium and antioxidants.

 

When you eat a carrot a day you get all the nutrients and it acts like a daily cleanse, pulling toxins out of your body as it moves through your digestive track. I have noticed a huge difference in my health when I eat a carrot a day in some way shape or form.

Some of the health benefits of eating carrots are:

  • Improves digestion
  • Improves skin
  • Improves kidney function
  • Reduces risk of stroke
  • Reduces excess estrogen
  • Reduces risk of heart attack
  • Improves liver function
  • Strengthens teeth
  • Great for eye health
  • Anti cancer
  • Balances hormones

3 ways to get your carrot a day. Great ideas to sneak them in for my kids.

3 Ways

to Eat Your Carrot Every Day 

3 ways to get your carrot a day

1. Eat a Carrot

The act of chewing a carrot activates enzymes in your mouth & strengthens your teeth. If you don't want to chew on a carrot, grate it and add it to your salad.

2. Carrot smoothie

This is how my family prefers carrots. I simply add carrots to their  smoothies. If your blender doesn't make it smooth, add carrot juice instead. For my kids, no more than 20% veggies in the smoothies works well.

We even make our smoothies into popsicles for on the go snacks!

3. Carrot Juice

Power packed with nutrients, fresh juiced carrots are a powerhouse of energy. I actually like to dilute mine 1/2 & 1/2 with water or rejuvilac. This makes for a slow steady cleanse.

Some people like to juice an apple or two with their carrots to add a little more flavor.

Try it for a week and feel the difference!
