The BEST Roasted Carrots

Print

As far as vegetables go, roasting them is THE BEST. And these are THE BEST roasted carrots. ever. When I work with clients as a health coach, they’re always looking for new delicious ways to get more vegetables in their life – whether they actually want to eat more vegetables, or they just think they should. Let’s be honest here – everybody could probably use to eat more vegetables in their diet, with all those vitamins and nutrients that keep our bodies feeling awesome.

Further Food Commentary:

Historically touted for their superior beta-carotene content (a vitamin A precursor), carrots are a nutritious source of powerful antioxidants. Furthermore, the beta-carotene found in carrots is more bioavailable than other forms of beta-carotene; this means you get more bang for your buck. Aside from anti-cancer and cardiovascular benefits gained from eating these antioxidant-rich root vegetables, the vitamin A is also integral to vision health and bone metabolism.
