Spiced Cool Carrot Salad

Submitted by:Rachel Gargano

Carrots get a bad rap. These slender orange-hued veggies are avoided because they are too high in sugar. The fact is, you'd have to eat around 3 cups of these antioxidant power houses to make your blood sugar rise significantly. I don't know about you, but I'm not in the habit of eating that many carrots at one time. One serving of carrots (about half a cup) has: 30 calories, 2 grams fiber, 7 grams carbohydrates (4 grams sugar), 234% of your recommended Daily Value of vitamin A, and a load of antioxidants (carotinoids, hydroxycinnamic acids, anthocyanindins). Studies show that orange/yellow vegetables are strongly linked to reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. And other components in carrots have been linked with the reduction of colon cancer risk . So go ahead and eat your carrots!


  • 5-6 large carrots, peeled and shredded 
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
