Carrots with Orange Recipe Ingredients:
Carrots – forget about Vitamin A pills. With this orange crunchy superfood, you get Vitamin A and a host of other powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging.
Oranges are rich in dietary fiber, pectin, which is very effective in persons with excess body weight. They help fight cancer, fight viral infections, and relieve constipation and help prevent kidney diseases and reduce the risk of kidney stones.
Almond oil has a high smoke point making it great for stir-frying and sautéing. It is good for High Heat Up To 460F. What I like about it is that it has a light, clean flavor that does not alter the taste of the foods I am using it to cook with, and for this carrots with orange recipe.
Coconut oil is actually very good for us. In tropical climates like Polynesia, Sri Lanka and the Yucatan where they have a diet high in coconut oil, the people are healthier, have less heart disease, cancer and colon problems than unsaturated fat eaters. It is now accepted that there is good cholesterol and there are good saturated fats. Learn the 12 benefits of Coconut Oil, this newly declared an Amazing SuperFood.
Himalayan Salt is actually good for you! 100% NATURAL PINK & CERTIFIED: Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salt is Kosher Certified, Non-GMO, and does not contain any MSG, Soy, Gluten, Dairy, or anti-caking agents.
Black Pepper adds a little extra flavor to these carrots with orange recipe.
I like both of these black peppers: Trader Joe’s Black Pepper Peppercorns with Grinder or Simply Organic Pepper, Black Medium Grind Certified Organic. The pepper adds a bit of heat to these quick pickles. You can pepper according to your taste.
As I don’t use sugar for my baking or cooking I often use stevia, as I did for this carrots with orange recipe which is a healthy option. The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed.
