Roasted Carrots

I love carrots!!! They give us dynamism, color on our plates and have loads of benefits for our health and skin.

Health BENEFITS of carrots

  • Rich in vitamin A which is great for our skin. Although I don’t recommend long period of time in the sun, this brilliant vitamin can help us stay more protected.
  • Known as one of the most effective diuretic vegetables! This promote the reduction of our body storing excess fluid.
  • Build strong hair and nails thanks to the beta-carotene and provitamin A.
  • Promote healthy eyes. Beta-carotene helps to protect the surface of the eye (cornea), which is essential for functioning vision.
  • Boosts the immune system with the critical minerals iron, zinc and copper.
