Delicious and healthy: You don't have to peel fresh carrots
Carrots are bombs of vitamins and minerals and are therefore particularly recommended in the cold season. As a snack in between, in a salad or as a side dish: the delicious vegetables are versatile in the kitchen. Incidentally, the orange beets do not have to be peeled.
Carrots are ideal for vitamin C intake in winter. Furthermore, the orange beets contain the vitamins B1, B2 and E as well as large amounts of beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A, which in turn is an important component of the visual pigment rhodopsin. This is why some people also assume that carrots are good for the eyes. Because they are particularly low in acid, experts say they are well suited for natural dental care.
The minerals potassium, calcium, phosphorus and iron also contribute to the high health value of the vegetables, reports the Provincial Association of Rheinischer Obst- und Gemüsebauer (Bonn). They are also low in calories and therefore ideal for everyone who wants to reduce their weight.
Carrots are versatile and part of many dishes. Hobby chefs usually peel carrots before processing, but this is not necessary for freshly purchased goods.
“Washing the vegetables shortly before they are sold eliminates this annoying task. In addition, by avoiding peeling, important ingredients can be obtained, ”writes the Provincial Association.
If you don't use carrots directly, you can easily store them in a plastic bag in the fridge for several days. Carrots can also be frozen well. "For this purpose, they are shredded beforehand according to the later use requirements." (Ad)
