Carrot Salad GF SCD

Close up of Carrot Salad

Ask everyone who lives in our house which vegetable we eat the most of and they'll all shout out CARROTS! Carrots are nutritional heroes,a great source of Vitamin A as well as Vitamins B1, B2, B6, C and K in addition to potassium, phosphorous and magnesium. They also taste good! But don't eat too many or you will literally turn orange!
