Sweet potatoes are by far the popular go-to Thanksgiving food. And for good reason – they’re delicious. But, this year, think about switching it up with another delicious orange food.
Try carrots at your Thanksgiving table this year and you’ll be glad you did. Sweet and caramelized, these baby carrots will be the talk of your holiday table.
Carrots are rich in Vitamin A. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that is highly beneficial for our eyesight. It plays a role in brain function as well as the health of our skin and our immune system.
If you can tolerate dairy, these carrots are delicious topped with some high-quality feta or goat cheese. If not, don’t worry! The cheese can easily be omitted and still taste fantastic.
