Bunch of Carrots

Eating Raw Carrots

100 g of carrots supplies 130 kJ. A fraction of your daily kJ intake. You can check the amount of kJs recommended for you. Note the calculation is sensitive to your daily general activity from Very Sedentary to Extremely active.

Imagine the weekly benefit of substituting a cake or brownie with a raw carrot.

Carrots also make a great base for cooking. Check this recipe for Hearty Vegetable and Lamb Soup.
