(page 4 of 9)

Carrots

Good Body Benefits: The orange color of carrots is courtesy of beta-carotene, which equals antioxidants. They happen to be chock-full of vitamin K, too. In fact, one serving of carrots contains almost 700 percent (yes, 700 percent) of the amount of vitamin K you need each day. And vitamin K keeps your eyes at their best.

How to Prepare: Whip them with potatoes, says chef Loving. Peel potatoes and cut into chunks before placing into boiling water with cut carrots. Once potatoes are mashable, drain the water. Whip chunks with a bit of low-fat milk until creamy using a hand blender.
