It's National Carrot Day!

I missed posting yesterday, the halfway point of winter. Known as Groundhog Day, Imbolc, Candlemas Day - the sun was up over 1 hour longer than on the first day of winter!


Today we celebrate a delicious vegetable - the carrot. They now come in several colors, including the traditionally known orange. Hope you will help your health by eating carrots often!

Peace, Judi

Mmm carrots, they are integral in my juice fast survival. They add just the right amount of sweetness to take spinach and kale in a glass to a palatable height! I too forgot about Groundhog's day!

Carrots are simply yummy! Karen has a carrot cake recipe contest going on over at her blog for carrot day. Two bloggers talking about carrots in one day, who woulda thunk it? :)

I buy those baby carrot, for a snack- instead of chips etc. :)
Would like to have garden to grow my own...

Judi, the lovely macro shot of the whole carrots is actually making me hungry *she says as she quietly hides the bag of chips behind the couch*
