The beta-carotene found in carrots maintains vision, regulates the growth of cells in your skin, keeps membranes lining your nose and respiratory tract healthy and helps control the production of proteins.
I was very much into carrots recently so here are some of my carrot-inspired innovations.
- Gourmet spinach smoothie bowl with blended bananas and carrot and topped with pumpkin seeds, dried mango chunks, few figs and PB2 (lowfat peanut butter powder). Yum!
2. Rawnola ( raw oats and dates), carrots, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds.
2. Cranberries (also very rich in Vitamin A) + carrot+banana
Blend the following with some non-dairy milk/or water and sweeten with stevia, raisins and a couple of dried figs.
2. Raw and easy to make pumpkin spice oatmeal
You only need a cup of oatmeal and a teaspoon of blackstrap molasses (or Maple Syrup) for the base and for the topping blend by pulsing two carrots, a celery strap (for the salty crunchiness), cacao powder, cinnamon, a splash of almond milk and 2-4 medjool dates.
