Rawesome Friday: The Eat Raw Series

This week, theHealthNuttyProfessor is adding this fantabulous, orange, crunchy, sweet veggie to the Eat Raw Series.


Here's some reasons theHealthNuttyProfessor thinks you should get munchin':

  • Vitamin A - cleansing the liver and flushing out toxins from the body
  • High amounts of potassium, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, and calcium
  • Help with skin problems like acne and blemishes or even dry skin
  • The minerals can benefit your teeth and gums and can kill germs (helps keep plaque down)
  • They are an antiseptic (prevent infection)
  • Can decrease your chance of heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol (up to 10-20!)
  • Contain falcarinol, which has anticancer properties
  • Beta-carotene in carrots can help improve vision 
Thanks to The Carrot Museum for some incredible info! Check out their page HERE.
Let's be honest, the health benefits of carrots easily make them worth putting on your grocery list this next week!

They're one of our favourite things to juice because they are fairly inexpensive, and they are a great combo with oranges and apples.  Add them to your salads, stir fry's, or just plain old munch on a delicious, raw, carrot stick!

Until next time, Stay healthy Ya'll!

Don't forget to get in on the GIVEAWAY HERE! It's simple to enter, and there's only a few days left!
