What You Don’t Want For Your Baked Carrots
I avoid “Baby Carrots” because they are not really baby carrots.
Baby carrots in today’s marketplace, are whittled down carrots and bits and pieces of carrots that have been salvaged. They are what is left of big carrots. Once the best parts of the carrot are removed, this core remains.
Be Aware that Carrots are Energy Producing nutrients.
For active people carrots are a good energy food. Besides containing lots of food value they contain a lot of natural sugar for runners and football players.
Although many dieters like to eat carrots, they do contain a lot of natural sugars.
Dips and dressings often contain add ins that are better left out, so use sparingly or exchange for a healthier option.
