It is important to consume seasonal vegetables, This week we will highlight the carrot

This vegetable is characterized by a high concentration of carotenoids (provitamins A, transformed into vitamin A by our body): beta-carotene and alpha-carotene. A 100 g serving of carrot covers more than half of an adult's daily vitamin A requirement.

It also contains group B vitamins, vitamin K and a little vitamin C.

Thus it provides an interesting amount of minerals: potassium, but also calcium, magnesium, iron.

These benefits are multiple including powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene slows aging and improves the condition of the skin. In addition, it promotes healing. Rich in antioxidants, the carrot would reduce bad cholesterol, protect the lungs and the heart against cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.

If we decided to tell you about the carrot it is because this vegetable consumes it both raw and cooked. A good carrot soup nothing like it for a winter evening.

And for the reluctant of the soup prefer it in a salad!

 

We will not hesitate to propose you simple and tasty recipes to wake up your taste buds!
