It’s easy to get addicted to carrots, especially when you serve them with some freshly made hummus. This crunchy food provides your body with highly beneficial carotenoids. Beta-carotene, for instance, targets inflammation and is known to support vision health.

This antioxidant is what yields the red-orange pigment found in plant-based foods. With one cup, you only consume 45 calories, yet gain 12 percent of your daily fiber intake, over 300 percent of your vitamin A, 10 percent of your vitamin C, and more. The perfect side dish is sliced carrots and sweet potato, roasted with olive oil, herbs, and spices.
