Who doesn’t love carrots? They are one of the most widely enjoyed vegetables in the world, and there are numerous reasons why. This root vegetable has a slightly sweet taste that goes well with many types of cuisine— be it roasted, boiled, or stir-fried. Carrots can also be eaten raw for a crunch full of nutrients, added to your favorite juice recipes, or finely grated for your perfect salad sides.
Carrots are the excellent source of beta-carotene, which, as antioxidants, slow down the aging of our body cells and reduce the risk of lung cancer. Carrots are also rich in fiber content, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, and essential minerals such as iron, copper, and manganese.
Carrots should be stored in the warmest part of the fridge or in a cool dark place. If you plan to store carrots for longer period of time, you should remove all the green stubble to prevent carrots from rotting. Ensure that the carrots are dry before putting them in the fridge, and line them with a thick layer of absorbent kitchen paper.
