Carrot + Beet Fritters
These brightly colored fritters are a fun and tasty way to add fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to your meal. Carrots not only add a pop of color, they are also loaded with beta-carotene, a phytonutrient found in orange foods. During digestion, it converts into vitamin A, which supports eye, skin, and liver health.
