What’s Up, Doc?

9 Oct
Carrot & Bunny

Isn’t this little guy adorable?
The bunny, not the carrot…
Though, to be fair, the carrot is fairly attractive as well.

Even though I’m a little late, I’ve risen from my sickbed to announce my superfood of the week: carrots!

Not only are they great for your eyes, they’re also great to eat during pregnancy because they are packed with nutrients.

Specifically, carrots contain about 700% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A that comes from the high levels of beta carotene. Because these nutrients come from plants rather than animals, you are good to eat carrots and not worry about potential harm to your unborn child.

Everyone knows carrots help with your eyesight (because of the high levels of vitamin A), but it’s also good for your baby’s eyes as they develop. Not bad, right?

So add carrots to your grocery list and get excited about some of the yummy carrot recipes that are coming this week 🙂 Here’s a teaser…

Carrot Ginger Soup is definitely coming your way.

And. Just in case you’re curious, I’m still sick 😦 After talking to my mom today, I think it’s just chest and head cold season. So fun, right?
