Carrots are top of the list among vegetables for control diabets. They are wildly healthy. Just think of all that beta-carotene and fiber! And they make a healthy stick to dip into hummus . Dip into just enough to flavour – you don’t need to drown a whole carrot stick. And they don’t get stuck in your teeth. Carrots are a nutritional heavyweight when it comes to vitamin A. No matter which type of carrots you choose, you’ll get all the vitamin A you need for the day. A cup of raw carrots, for example, offers 408 percent of the daily value per cup, while a cup of boiled carrots has 532 percent of the daily value. Carrots also help boost your intake of vitamin C. Getting enough vitamin C in your diet is key for burning fat during exercise, according to a study published in a 2006 issue of Nutrition & Metabolism.
