We all know what to do when life gives you lemons, but what about when life gives you carrots? You make carrot soup of course!
I had the opportunity to harvest some carrots last weekend and holy gods there were a lot! I’m all but drowning in carrots (not that that’s a bad thing). So clearly a variety of carrot infused recipes are in order.
I’m so glad for it! All these carrots mean tons of beta-carotene, which your fantastic body will convert into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is marvelous for the skin (a fact that led last weeks Health-Esteem Queen Kaye down the path of becoming the beautiful nutritionista she is today). Not only will the nutrients in this beautiful veggie support your skin, Vitamin A can also help nourish your hair, giving your strong, shiny locks and a healthy scalp. Carrots also bring vitamins B7 and K to the table (among a lot of other goodness) and offer tons of antioxidants! The fiber is great for your digestive system and, super bonus, these lovely, orange roots support your amazing cardiovascular system.
So what do you do when life makes you lemons? You make Carrot Soup! Care to join me?
