I remember when I was young, my mother always trying to get me to eat my carrots because they were good for my eyes. It is true carrots are high in vitamin A and beta-carotene, which are essential for good vision. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that they will help your eyes unless you are deficient in vitamin A (of course, if you do have a deficiency, they will definitely help). But, carrots have other health benefits, so you definitely need to be eating them! They have anti-cancer properties in general and specifically are specifically helpful against lung, colorectal, and prostate cancer and leukemia.
The photo above is of one of my favorite ways to eat carrots – roasted. These are roasted by themselves in olive oil and salt and pepper, but they are also delicious sprinkled with herbs or roasted with other vegetables and/or garlic. The recipe is really just a guide. Add what you like!
