Since we gave celery recipes the spotlight recently, we figured it was only fair to give their partner in crime some time to shine. The amazing thing about carrot recipes is that they're never pinned down to one meal of the day. Carrots can be great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and even cocktails.

Everyone knows that carrots are loaded with health benefits, including tons of beta-carotine, which is especially great for your eye health. There. We've said it, and now you have a health excuse to eat this delicious root vegetable in any meal you please. Enjoy!
