Carrots are a weight-loss-friendly food thought to lower cholesterol levels, improve eye health and have been linked to a reduced risk of cancer.
They contain beta carotene (an antioxidant that your body converts into vitamin A), fiber, vitamin K1 and potassium.
Be aware if you eat too many carrots your skin may turn a yellow/orange colour!
Cooking carrots breaks down the tough cellular walls that encase the beta-carotene which increases the nutritional value.
