Introducing my current veggie fixation…these beautiful rainbow carrots – each colour providing different health benefits to my body:

 Orange = high levels of beta carotene, a precursor to Vitamin A.
 Purple = beta carotene and anthocyanins that can yield twice the antioxidant power of vitamin C!
 Yellow = Xanthophykks and lutein which have both been linked to cancer prevention and improved eye health.
White = health-supportive nutrients housed in its healthy fibre.
Red = beta-carotene and Lycopene which is linked lowering the risk of prostate cancer.

And the best way to eat them if you can’t digest them in their raw form?
