Delicious Carrots with Orange

A surprising but delightful combination. This recipe is also ridiculously easy to make.

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.

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.

  1. My Mother always used them together and I continue to do so.The only thing I do not use is Stevia, I don’t like it, Coconut oil is sweet enough

  2. I actually prefer this raw, in my juicer or if you do not have, use a blender. The raw fruit and veggie is much healthier…I use 2x amount carrot to orange and agree with the other post….additional sweetner is not necessary with the natural sweetness of the fruit and veggie AND the oil.

  3. Though isn’t stevia excellent for your skin and digestion and without the drawbacks of other sweeteners? Seems like a way to add it in to your diet that disguises the taste for those who are not find of it.
