NUTRIENT SNAPSHOT ABOUT CARROTS

– Orange carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which the body makes vitamin A from. We all know they promote eye health, but they also aid in digestion, weight control, and contain silicon which promotes skin and nail health – yep, they are even good for your toe-nails!

– Eating carrots raw daily can reduce the risk of cancers of the esophagus, stomach, intestines, and prostate. Plus the essential oils they carry protect against parasites.

– The green carrot tops are rich in chlorophyll, protein, minerals, and vitamins. You can use small amounts in salad, as a garnish or brew into a tea.

– Purple carrots have extra antioxidants that may benefit arthritis and heart disease.

– It’s best to buy loose carrots rather then those in plastic bags and consume them pretty quickly so they don’t lose their beta-carotene content.

Bonus Tip!
Stick a few small carrots sticks a day in your kids lunch box to help strengthen and clean their teeth. Regularly eating carrots may also help encourage lower jaw development and minimize over crowded teeth.

Ready for the truth no one wants you to know?

There actually IS a secret tool to getting healthier.

Here’s another secret:
It DOESN’T involve giving up treats and wine forever.

In fact, the way I’ve been able to keep my family and I healthy for the last decade has been largely thanks to the 80/20 rule.

This week’s blog (link below) is ALL about moderation. The word you hear SO MUCH, but never really know how to practically include in your life.

Also on the blog, 15 DELICIOUS (and I mean actually delicious) vegetable recipes.

No, I’m not going to tell you to make a plain salad with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

Let’s talk about VEGGIES that are delicious and taste like our favourite comfort food.

When we start to rekindle our flame with veggies, we remember how good they can taste and how they make us FEEL.

What’s your favourite FUN way to include veggies in your diet?

I really enjoyed reading your blog on Veggies! I like the different ideas on how to incorporate more veggies. I love grilled veggies the best but also enjoy making casseroles with different veggies! I cant wait to try some of your new veggie recipes....even the butternut smoothie😬!

If you have some nagging symptoms, its possible that theyre related to the foods you eat!

And were not just talking digestive symptoms.

Even things like headaches, joint pain, or eczema can be related to food that youre sensitive to.

How would you find out if there is a food at the root of your issue?

Through an elimination diet!

Elimination diets are just that - eliminating certain foods. Then you reintroduce them back one at a time to see if you are sensitive to those foods.

It’s a strategic process that can be great… but also not so great.

In this weeks blog - link below - I share the pros and cons of elimination diets and my latest recipe - youll never know that it eliminates the most common allergens (because its so good).
