As a child I used to get carrots sticks in my lunchbox, every single day, along with dried mango; and peanut butter & honey on toast, not together thank goodness 😉 I used to argue with my mom about eating carrots every day and she would insist that she was benefiting my life! Eventually I started making juices and mixing things up!

Not only are they good for you, they add so much flavour and a natural sweetness to any dish.

A medium-size carrot has 25 calories, 6 grams of carbs, and 2 grams of fibre. They are an excellent source of vitamin A, providing more than 200% of your daily requirement in just one carrot. In fact, just one medium carrot or a handful of baby carrots counts as one serving of your daily veggies.

Eating them raw is always better but the next best thing is steaming them. When making stock always add 2 whole extra carrots, trust me the you’ll taste the difference.
