Crunch a carrot<br><br>
Start crunching away studies have shown that a high carrot consumption can lower your risk of cancer by up to 40 percent. Researchers from the University of Newcastle in England believe that<br><br>
falcarinol, a compound that protects the vegetable from fungal diseases, may be the prime reason for this benefit.<br><br>
Take actionLuckily, carrots are low in calories and can therefore be eaten freely. Include at least one portion of carrots (1/2 a cup of grated carrots) in your diet every day. Although fresh carrots are the healthiest, you can also steam or cook this veggie, whip it into a tasty smoothie or drink carrot juice as an alternative.

Don't eat too much carrots. I saw someone turn orange by drinking too much carrotjuice.

I've actually heard of that lol. It's ok. Regardless of what research comes out, I don't believe in miracle foods, so to speak. Carrots are simply yet another healthy vegetable, and I will eat them when I feel like it. When I don't, I'll eat a different healthy vegetable :p<br><br>
The exception is coconuts. I am addicted to them and have, therefore, convinced myself that they are a miracle food as an excuse to eat them.

I eat carrots every day. So aiong with the other foods that I eat that are supposed to reduce your risk of cancer by 40%, and a healthy vegan diet, I have no chance of ever developing cancer!!<br><br>
Coconuts eh? Don't they take a fair bit of chewing then nomad888? Especially if you have a fetish for them.

It's funny because when I was a little kid, if my mom would have given me carrots, I would have thrown them at her. Now I go through about a bag a week, it is like potato chips - I can't eat just one carrot <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Actually the biggest problem is the preparation time. In the morning I'll usually have something along the lines of a coconut/vegetable smoothie and, at the same time, dismantle another to throw in a container and munch on throughout the day. I don't eat them at every meal, but I do eat them almost every day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yeah totally, I love carrots, but it drives me nuts that every 5 miniutes the media talks about a new miracle food, based on a single study and making out it's a miracle food, instead of looking at a range of studies and realising that eating fruit and vegetables generally is good for you!<br><br>
I am having carrots for tea <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'm addicted to fresh carrot juice, can't get enough <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">. Carrots and hummus sounds like a great idea, will definitely try that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

My favorite way to eat carrots:<br><br>
Mix shredded carrots (you can shred them yourself, or be like me, and just by them pre-shredded), some drained canned mandarin orange slices, and dried cranberries with a few sprinkles (I'm bad at exact measurements!) of sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, and a pinch of salt and brown sugar. Top with sesame seeds (I toast them first), and enjoy.<br><br>
^^ This is seriously one of the tastiest things on earth, and because it's so easy to polish off yourself, a great way to meet your carrot quota <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
