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.

Serves approx 4
Time: 35 minutes

INGREDIENTS

2 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil
6 stalks Green Onion (chopped)
5 Carrot (medium size, chopped)

2 tsps Dried Thyme
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper

2. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer. Let simmer for 20 minutes then add in the parsley and stir until wilted. Turn off the heat
3. Puree the soup using a blender or handheld immersion blender. (Note: If using a regular blender, be careful! Ensure you leave a space for the steam to escape.) Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
4. Ladle into bowls and enjoy!

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.
