Carrots

Carrots are natureโ€™s candy when it comes to veggies. If you have a sweet tooth, try a few carrots and they will immediately curb your cravings. Carrots are excellent for weight loss, but they aren't just a diet food. Carrots are nutritional powerhouses. They are one of the best plant foods for a combination of Vitamin C, magnesium, fiber and Vitamin A. These nutrients are crucial for good health and for weight loss

. Carrots make your skin glow, and nails strong. They also keep you full from the high amounts of fiber, so youโ€™re less likely to binge on carrots as a snack versus chips or cookies. I like carrots raw, roasted, tossed into salads, juiced or steamed by themselves with a little seasoning. They also make a great ingredient in homemade veggie soup. Springtime is the best time of the year to find them fresh and in season, which makes them not only less expensive, but tastier too.
