Everyone knows that you can’t go wrong with carrots. These little beauties, so rich in beta-carotene and antioxidants, can (and should) be a great addition to your fruit and veggie mixtures fed each night.
Carrots can, of course, be found year-round in your local grocery store. However, during the summer months, either grow your own or find someone who does, because there’s nothing quite like the fresh, sweet flavor of a fresh from the garden carrot. Did you know that carrots come in lots of colors? They sure do! Along with the typical orange, you can find red, white, yellow and purple! So, go outside your comfort zone and experiment! 🙂
There’s not a lot to finding good carrots. In the produce section, simply purchasing a bag is sufficient. Unless the bag has clear mold or other nasties in it, it’s likely all the carrots are fine to feed. No need to peel – simply chop and feed. I will sometimes chop them into little round pieces and I have one cage that eats the middle then leaves the outside LOL. Silly little critters, they are!
