Dandelion – More than just a Weed?
No creature is fully itself till it is, like a dandelion,
opened in the bloom of pure relationship to the sun,
the entire living cosmos.

D.H. Lawrence

Carrots

Hey Guys! Lets talk Carrots!!!

Not the carats that we associate with the size of a wedding ring or a just-because-gift, but the one that’s long, orange, and is the root of a plant that is eaten as a vegetable…the one that Bugs Bunny loved. Yeah, that’s the one. CARROTS!

Here’s a little fun fact – For the most part, we think of carrots as being only orange, but they can also be white, yellow, red, and even purple.

Did you know that people first grew carrots for medicine, and not food, to combat a variety of ailments? And the reason for that is because of something called beta-carotene–a yellow/orange pigment that gives fruits and vegetables its vibrant colors. But, to take beta-carotene a little further, when it enters the body, its converted into vitamin A; which is needed for healthy skin, our immune system, and for the health of our eyes and vision.

So come with me and lets take a ride into the wonderful world of carrots!
