Carrots are a nutrient-dense vegetable that offer a range of health benefits. They are particularly good for eye health, digestive health, heart health, immune system and skin health. However, they are high in sugar and overconsumption can cause carotenemia. Additionally, they may cause allergic reactions and are high in vitamin K. Carrots can be easily incorporated into meal planning and prepping, and are commonly used in salads, soups, and as a snack with hummus or other dips.
