Carrots

Carrots are perhaps best known for their rich supply of the antioxidant nutrient that was actually named for them: beta-carotene. These delicious root vegetables are the source not only of beta-carotene, but also of a wide variety of antioxidants and other health-supporting nutrients. The areas of antioxidant benefits, cardiovascular benefits, and anti-cancer benefits are the best-researched areas of health research with respect to dietary intake of carrots. While heating can often damage some of the delicate phytonutrients in vegetables, the beta-carotene as found in carrots has been shown to be surprisingly heat-stable. Be careful not to overcook carrots if you want to your carrots to retain their maximum flavor and strong overall nutritional value.
