Ways to eat carrots for maximum benefits

Raw vs. Cooked

Both offer advantages. Raw carrots provide more vitamin C and fiber, while cooked carrots allow for better beta-carotene absorption due to the breakdown of cell walls.

Pair with Fat

Beta-carotene is fat-soluble. Enjoying carrots with healthy fats like avocado, olive oil, or nuts helps your body absorb more of this beneficial nutrient.

Blending is Good

Blending carrots into smoothies or juices increases their surface area, aiding nutrient absorption.

Roasting Brings Out Flavor

Roasting carrots intensifies their natural sweetness and brings out a deeper, richer flavor. Toss them with olive oil, herbs, and spices for a delicious side dish.

Soups and Stews

Diced carrots add a pop of color, sweetness, and nutrients to soups and stews.

Ferment for Gut Health

Fermented carrots, known as kimchi in Korean cuisine, are a great source of probiotics that contribute to a healthy gut microbiome.

Snack on Sticks

Cut carrots into sticks for a healthy, crunchy snack. Pair them with hummus, guacamole, or a yogurt dip for added flavor and creaminess.

Grated Goodness 

Grated carrots add moisture and sweetness to baked goods like muffins, cakes, and quick breads.pen_spark tuneshare more_vert
