Recipes – Carrot Cake In-The-Raw & A Carrot Facial
Our household loves carrots. Nimue will walk around like Bugs Bunny all day long. I remember when she was younger and her sweet face was stained orange constantly from them! Arianne likes them in sticks and Caoilinn likes them as circles so she can poke the middle out of them. Rhiannon and Gwendolyn will reach for a chopped handful as they run out the house. And of course we love them in our green smoothies.
We eat carrots plain, splashed with balsamic vinegar, dipped in a garlicky cashew sunflower spread or lightly sauteed in lemon and garlic and more. I don’t have to tell my kids about all the benefits of eating these vegetables, they just seem to innately know. I do still talk about those benefits though. I can’t seem to help it as it is a bit of an obsession with me.
Carrots are an alkaline food which is great as todays conventional diet is extremely acidic. They are high in fiber and a good source of vitamin C and of course the well known beta carotene component. We were all brought up with the knowledge that carrots are high in vitamin A and excellent for eye health. But did you know that they also make excellent facials and hair masques?
