Getting the Most from your Carrots

To get the most nutritional bang from your carrots, cook them whole and use mature, not “baby” carrots. Mature carrots have 30% more antioxidants than “baby” carrots (really whittled down misshapen mature carrots) and cooking them whole vs. cut up maximizes their beneficial antioxidants. Lastly, cooked carrots provide 25% more antioxidants than raw carrots. The easiest and most delicious way I have found is to simply roast whole, mature carrots – try it to see for yourself!
