International Carrot Day

There is a food holiday for just about everything! And of course, we love to celebrate them all with great food and good company! Tomorrow we’re celebrating International Carrot Day – an ode to the humble and versatile root vegetable. 

The bright orange color of carrots not only make them stand out on your plate, it also provides vitamins and minerals that are specifically attributed to the color. Carrots provide the body with beta-carotene (converted to Vitamin A), Vitamin K, potassium, antioxidants, and fiber. This unique blend of nutrients can help promote good eye sight, stimulate cell growth, improve immune function, and increase blood formation – just some of the nutritional benefits the carrot brings to the table.

Carrots can be enjoyed in a variety of ways – raw, steamed, roasted, grilled or mashed. The list is practically endless! Libby’s® Canned Fruits and Vegetables make it easy to add carrots to your diet with ready-to-use Sliced Carrots. These carrots come ready to add to your meals so you can reap all the great benefits of this delicious vegetable.
