SOME TIPS AND COMMENTS
1. To prepare in bulk, grate 3-4 carrots and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
2. We recommend eating ½-1 carrot every day. Watch your digestion for feedback. Do not assume eating more carrots may be better.
3. Eat the carrot salad in mid afternoon with a piece of cheese or a glass of milk. If you choose cheese, have a glass of fruit juice with the snack to keep sugar levels stable.
4. We are eating the carrots raw to allow the fiber to help absorb intestinal toxins and bacteria. The beta carotene in the carrots is not favorable because it acts like polyunsaturated fats (PUFAS). The PUFAS grab hold of oxygen molecules and are oxidized with the oxygen resulting in free radicals. Free radicals are unpaired electrons looking for a partner to stabilize them but in the meantime they cause damage to the cells
5. Use vinegar with caution. In the production process, vinegars can accrue sediment and impurities that can affect digestion negatively, which is why we recommend white vinegar.
Refrigerate grated carrots for only 3-4 days. Refrigerate salad dressing in a closed container for 2-3 weeks.
