09 May Power Food Recipe: BAKED PARMESAN CARROT FRIES WITH CHILLI MAYO DIP
Power Food this week is Carrots! The vegetable is often pulped, mashed, boiled, puréed, grated, fried, steamed, stewed, baked, juiced or eaten raw. Carrots are typically used in stir-fries and salads, but also in soups and added to baby foods or pet foods. They can be dehydrated or deep-fried to make chips, flakes, and powder. Carrots have a higher natural sugar content than all other vegetables with the exception of beets. This is why they make a wonderful snack when eaten raw and make a tasty addition to a variety of cooked dishes.
Health Benefits of Carrots
The veggie is an excellent source of vitamin A, providing more than 200% of your daily requirement in just one carrot. Vitamin A is important for the health of our vision (including our night vision) as well as our bones, teeth, and skin. A medium-size carrot has 25 calories, 6 grams of carbs, and 2 grams of fiber.
