I'm Diane Hoch, and this is, Why do carrots help your eyes? Carrots are full of essential vitamins and minerals vital for eye health, like beta carotene. Beta carotene is a powerful carotenoid that's known to improve night blindness and promote good vision by protecting the surface of the eye, and promoting good vision. It's amazing how you can take one vegetable, cut it and prepare it three different ways, and have a food that tastes so different. I love that! So, here I've shown you how I've prepared carrot French fries by cutting them into shoestring French fry shapes and roasting them in the oven. Then, stew cut, which you can put in a nice stew, and it's long-roasting and tastes differently than if you're slicing them into little coins and perhaps steaming them with a little maple syrup and topping with parsley. Carotenoids are pro-vitamins that your body turns into Vitamin A. Carrots are full of them, and they're really great for you. So, whole foods, real foods. Stay healthy!
