Carrots are one of the rare vegetables that are more nutritious cooked than raw. Moreover, carrots are more nutritious when cut by a knife!

Don’t worry though, both raw or heat-processed carrots are very healthy and very recommended in just but every diet.

Carrots are moderately anti-inflammatory which is very desirable since eating a lot of protein rich foods can acidify your body.

It is not recommended to drink carrot juice on Dukan Diet as it is high in natural sugars while lacks dietary fibers. So, eat carrots raw, boiled, steamed or grilled. And cut them by a knife.

If you are interested in some peculiar facts on carrots (and why exactly you should cut and cook it, visit Carrot Museum).
