This recipe for Glazed Carrots is SO simple to prepare and is a wonderful accompaniment to any meal. They are so good that even your pickiest eater will love them.
I didn’t grow up eating carrots and when I did have them, they weren’t very memorable. They were usually just boiled in water with a little butter, salt, and sometimes a sprinkling of pepper. What I have learned as I have “matured” is that there are other ways to prepare carrots that are quite delicious and they are also very healthy for you.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF CARROTS
Were you ever told to eat your carrots because they were good for your eyes? Actually, that is true, because carrots are high in betacarotene which converts to Vitamin A, an important nutrient for eye health.
Carrots are also high in fiber which helps control blood sugars. If diabetes is a problem in your family, this is one vegetable you should add to your diet.
High in Vitamin K and calcium, carrots are also good for promoting bone health.
