CARROTS!!

Why did I choose carrots??  Well, not only are they one of my favorite foods to snack on, they also happen to be packed with health benefits.  They’re listed as one of the World’s Healthiest Foods!  Just check out all the benefits of eating carrots:

  • Helps protect vision, particularly night vision
  • Beneficial to blood sugar regulation
  • Reduces the risk of heart disease
  • Promotes colon health
  • Promotes lung health
  • An excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, dietary fiber and potassium

The Rules:

 

1. Make a unique edible creation out of Carrots.  Sweet, savory… there are no rules here, just make sure it’s original!

 

2. Link back to my blog when you post your recipe on yours.  Let me know it’s up by e-mailing me at cmsaur16@gmail.com or leaving a comment on one of my posts.  If you don’t have a blog, no worries!  You still count.  Just shoot me an e-mail with your recipe. 

 

3. Please submit your recipe by Sunday, December 21 @ 7:00 PM EST.  Winners will be announced Monday morning!!

 

Ok guys, start brainstorming!!  I’ll be back later today with a recap of my eats from over the weekend and a carroty creation to start off the BSI contest with a bang.  😉

    I can’t wait to see what you come up with, I have a really hard time knowing what to do with carrots besides eating them raw and putting them in soups.

    & yay for all the health benefits!

    I eat carrots almost everyday, but they’re always just in plain carrot form. This will take some thinking…good ingredient!

    sweetandnatural That’s what I think most people do with their carrots, which is why I wanted to challenge myself to use them in a new way.
