I’m the girlfriend you text when you’re scratching your head reading labels in the grocery store, the confidante you blurt your “I can’t tell anyone else!” bathroom shenanigans to and the handy science nerd who comes through with the best cost-cutting, time-saving health tips you don’t know how you ever lived without.
Do you eat carrot greens (aka carrot tops)? If not, you should! These greens are delicious and packed with nutrients such as vitamin A, dietary fiber, vitamin C, calcium, vitamin K, iron, and various phenolic compounds and carotenoids, along with trace amounts of other antioxidants. In fact, carrot greens actually contain about six times more vitamin C than the root. (Read more about the health benefits of carrot tops here.)
You can eat these greens so many different ways but one of my favorite ways is cutting them up and adding them to salads. Super easy way to add a bit of extra flavor, fiber, and texture to your meals.
